Taken from another website.
1: number of times Rossi has had to battle for the title in the last race of the year. A new facet of his personality was revealed when he choked under pressure from Nicky Hayden.
3: number of races won by Troy Bayliss at Valencia this year. First time anyone has won a MotoGP and a SBK race in the same year. Also the number of first-time MotoGP race winners this year.
5: number of points separating Valentino Rossi and Nicky Hayden at the end of the season. Also the number of points Toni Elias took from Rossi in Portugal by 0.002 seconds at Estoril, and gifted to Hayden when Edwards pitched himself off his motorcycle 100 yards away from the finish line at Assen.
7: number of race winners this year. Came agonizingly close to eight (see Assen again)
16: number of years separating the youngest winner this year (Pedrosa, 21) from the oldest (Bayliss, 37).
