Do decades matter? MotoGP has offered a certain symmetry in line with the calendar, without exactly matching the round numbers. The 1990s belonged to Mick Doohan – at least after Wayne Rainey and Kevin Schwantz finished up in the early years. The 2000s were Rossi’s personal property. Then, Spain took over the 2010s, kicked off by Jorge Lorenzo, then supplanted from 2013 by boy wonder Marc Marquez.
