NotesEdit

  1. ^ The 2011 MotoGP race was cancelled because of a crash on the second lap that resulted in the death of Marco Simoncelli. Under Article 1.25.2 in the regulations, all motorcycles on the same lap as the leader must finish three complete laps for a race to be official. As only one lap had been completed, the race was abandoned.
