Italian maestro needs to keep racing if he's to beat Loris Capirossi's 17-year record
Capirossi leads the field with a stretch of 17 years and 49 days from his first 125 win in 1990 to his last MotoGP win in Japan last year; Angel Nieto is next, with a span of 16 years and eight days, then Phil Read (14 years and 71 days).
Rossi currently lies sixth in the world, behind also Loris Reggiani and Max Biaggi, with his recent win in China giving him an 11-year and 260-day reign.
