Why is F1 full of engines from Mercedes, Ferrari, Renault, and Cosworth and they are all locked into spec engine racing.

Motogp now is the F1 of the past, F1 went through all of these scenarios of open RPM engines etc, etc, and it was bad for the show. F1 use a single ECU because they were made to run a single spec V8 to bring cost down and to make it more fare. I'm sure Ferrari didn't like going away from their 12 cylinder but they and so did the rest. Rumor is Honda will again inter F1 with the 6 cylinder turbo engines start again in 2014. F1 is and has been working on the show without loosing it's partners for engines, It took years to change F1 rules and MotoGP better start looking for the same way to save our sport before its too late as we don't have years to loose more fans and sponsors. "Oh I forgot there already are no sponsors."

Moto2 and Moto3 works with 600 spec just let the other companies in by building same bore stroke engines and then do the same to MotoGP

Their 'red lines' will just destroy any racing in MotoGP. Next season I'm looking forward to Moto2, BSB, WSS, WSBK in that order. As for watching Casey Stoner become 2012 world champ, not so sure. Get rid of the damn electronics!!

Who would become the likely champion if they got rid of the damn electronics you speak of?

@8 At the moment I reckon that would be Stoner or Lorenzo, but I don't mind too much who wins or if they're getting lap records, I just want people to have to work for their wins and do a bit of racing. BSB have got it right I think, I'm off to Brands to see the opener because that's going to be good!

@8 that would be the rider that can ride the bike using just skill,not the rider that relied on electronics who just pinned the gas and steered the bike round the track.

re: rpm limits and spec ecu's, if formula 1 can agree to that then surely motogp can, get electronic aid's off the bikes, the rider then has to be more important again, capped rpm limits controls power. Independent manufacturers can build bikes that can win, maybe in a couple of years we will have a grid of 30 bikes with maybe 15 in with a chance of winning, I cant wait, CRT Moto1 will be the best thing to happen to our sport ever.
