Season summaryEdit

 
Mick Doohan (3) leads Kevin Schwantz (34), Wayne Rainey (1) and John Kocinski (19) at the 1991 Japanese Grand Prix

The beginning of the 1990s marked a golden age for Grand Prix motorcycle racing.[1] The rivalry between Wayne Rainey and Kevin Schwantz was in full flow while Mick Doohan started to come into his own.[1] Eddie Lawson had switched to Cagiva and started to have some respectable results.[1] In a one-year quirk, only 13 races counted as, competitors were allowed to drop their two worst scores.[1] The Yugoslavia round was dropped because of the civil war and replaced with a Grand Prix of Europe at Jarama.[1] The Brazilian round was also dropped at the last minute over track safety concerns and replaced with a race held at Le Mans.[1] The inaugural Malaysian Grand Prix was held at Shah Alam.[1]

For the 1991 season, Michelin decided to supply only the Rothmans Honda team with tires; everybody else used Dunlops.[1][2]

Luca Cadalora won the 250 title in a dominating fashion with eight wins.[1] In the 125 class, Italian teenager Loris Capirossi swept to the title for the second consecutive year.[1]
