Oh and in addition to aboves GP 500 post: I`ve ordered the FIM's 2016 red bible to solve those startnumbers unmentioned ;)
Happy weekend everyone, I`m on call

:bye:


Does that "red bible" really contain this info, and if, where can I order one?


Official MotoGP website shop. It is the only copy available (& released publically) except you find someone of the eligible circle who got it exclusively in previous years.
There you go >>> http://store.motogp.com/en/motogptm-176/books/3847_fim-motogp-results-guide-2016-ed-english-version.html


Hmm. The description sounds like it is just a compilation of "points finishers", not a word about complete results or even starting numbers. Unless you find out it does contain more info I'll pass it up.

You are right. There ain't startlists.
It contains from 1949 - 2015 mainly :

- Final championship standings
- Top 5 to Top 15 results (depending on year & race)
- Results per rider
- Results per manufacturer

For me it is a good guide through the history of the sport and quite helpful too when I read these old books
