I would love to know how the manufacturing points are counted.
Honda only 5 points ahead of Yamaha after two wins one second and two thirds while Yamaha have only had one win two seconds and one third.

@Samas
Manufacturers earn points by virtue of the best one finish of their total of bikes on the grid. Honda best over last 3 rounds: win, second, win = points: 25 + 20 + 25. Yamaha best over last 3 rounds: second, win, second = points: 20 + 25 +20.
Savvy?

team points? - Unregistered

When discussing points, can someone please explain how the team points are calculated? Especially for Repsol Honda, having a 3 rider team? Adding the team total and multiplying the result with 2/3 would 'only' give them 88 points where the results table shows 96? (best two riders together make up for 102 points).
