Dorna is killing motogp with their shortsighted selfishness. They are terrible at promoting the brand to emerging markets. If you want a youtube ban, try putting a video of a motogp bike in motion. Even videos they refuse to show on their site. How does the sport grow that they try to keep a selfish secret? The problem with the sport is lack of sponsors. Why would a sponsor willing to pay for something they don't know exists?

MotoGP has always been about having the best bike. You can go all the way back to the Norton and then the MV Augusta. Winning on an inferior bike is few and far between. Championship-wise you can only point out Schwantz and Roberts Jr in the last 30 or 40 years who won a title on what wasn't anything close to the best bike. Rider skill matters but so does the bike. It always has been that way so I don't understand your rant like it's been any different at any time in the history of MotoGP.

WSB and BSB has had close and exciting racing for years now.
The two race per meeting format seems to work better for the spectator, the grid is well represented by the manufacturers, the bikes seem more evenly matched than their motogp counterparts and the riders seem freer to speak their minds.
Last year motogp almost became a joke with so few bikes on the grid and only one of three or four riders in with a chance of the title. What it lacked was EXCITEMENT!
The whole series needs seriously overhauling.
Love him or hate him, once Rossi decides to retire
I can see the whole circus losing heaps of viewing figures and therefore sponsorship money through lack of personality /excitement for the average TV audience.
I KNOW Stoner is fast at the moment and putting in blistering lap times but try explaining how much skill is needed to do that to the uninitiated who just want visual excitement and watch them glaze over.
The sport needs bigger grids, closer racing and maybe a bit more p

Think you guys expect too much sometimes.Wouldn't matter if all the riders were on the same bike with the same tyre coz the results would still be the same,the best would win the worst would come last and there would be no more overtaking then what there is now.

I'm a motorcycle fan and a good looking motorcycle will stop me in my tracks no problem.Now tell me that its got titanium this carbon that and the fly by wire throttle has more computing technology than the first rocket to the moon then i'm even more interested in the beast i'm looking at.

Give a man a bike and a shed and he will tinker,he will try to make it better and faster the last thing he will do is try to dumb it down and make it uglier.

Sick Cylinder:- You are right, I was there. 2 works 4 cylinder MV's and the rest were single cylinder privateer Manx Nortons, Matchless G50's and AJS 7R (boy racer's), And we still had good racing because 3rd place was a good as a win to the privateers.

What i think of MotoGP

A holding back project.

its not the pinacle in motorsport.

less fuel less performans.

less engines less performans

more weight less performans, and it will use more fuel.

and the bike's will get more heavy.

Motogp? motofailure!!!

Give up Motogp and go back to 500 Gran Prix, but with no technical limitations - 2-stroke, 4-stroke, turbo and superchargers, eight cylinders, six cylinders--whatever! Then the technology will get interesting and we'd see some real innovation.

I'm against anything that takes away from the riders abilities to win races or the craftiness of the manufacturers to build a competitive bike. This is why I deplore the idea of having multiple tire manufacturers in MotoGP. Have we forgotten what happened in 2007 when nobody on Michelins had a chance? Don't you recall how Tech 3 were permanent back markers on the Dunlops? Seriously, we don't need a tire competition in MotoGP. It only benefits tire manufacturers and single tire rule is the way to go.

Now obviously, the tires MUST be SAFE and there MUST be NO favoritism--problems which ARE NOT a product of a single tire rule. These same problems exist with multiple manufacturers. Please don't attribute them to the single tire rule.

I want to see the best riders on the best bikes and thats it. I dont want to see two bit outfits with backyard built bikes.. I want to see Honda, Yamaha and any one else who has the balls and money to compete.
