2 new rules will square up the playing field and secure the future of motogp:

- lower the rev limit to what can be easilly obtained by using modified production components without pneumatic valves

- introduce a control ECU with programming/mapping to be performed by the team and unrestricted

Now scrap the 100% prototype rule and the claiming rule and make everyone have the same amount of fuel and engines.

this article says nothing we don't already know!
i was expecting to see the msma proposal.
anyway the one bike rule is a guarantee threat to the spectacle wherever they set up a race , the full grid will never start a race.
two bikes a rider limit would make more sense , poor teams will have to go with one until more sponsor helps them to another.
if they are too poor mabe they are in the wrong game , this is motogp at the top , you have to come prepared not force everyone else to play the poor mans game.
motogp needs to start putting it out there to attract sponsor .

The factories dictating to Dorna that they MUST NOT be beaten by a CRT bike is a disgrace, and saying they want to help the show 'where possible' shows the contempt in which they hold the fans. Espaleta needs to tell the factoried to f*** off or produce affordable bikes, enough to fill the grids or insist that factory bikes are sold on at the end of the year.
The factory stranglehold has to end.

All manufacturing teams field 6 bikes,6x3=18, 2 works and 4 Satellite.
Allow Satellite teams to claim the winning bike,half a million quid sounds good to me.
Half a million quids worth of technology may entice teams like Kawasaki,suzuki and Aprilia back.

Scrap the CRT idea. Dorna are gonna give them concessions until they can nearly win then MSMA are gonna make sure the rug is pulled from under there feet when they are nearly there.So why bother.

In any proposal the proposer usually includes suggestions which they don't really need or want. These are so they can "concede" the point as a trade-in to achieve their real aims. I think that could be the reason for Dorna introducing a one-bike rule to the debate. No-one actually supports the idea. It's just an item to "give way" on when chasing a deal with the Teams.

For me I think all the motogp riders should ditch their premier class and get stuck in the moto2 class they putting in an fantastic show and loads of dogfights that's how's racing suppose to be !!

Just promote Moto GP more. Its the best Motor Sport in the world. If more people watch it and go to the races, there will be more money.

If you reduce money on promotion, are tight with viewing rights, and reduce the spectacle of the show, less people will watch and the armchair fans will start to tune into F1 again.

They are going to cause more problems than they fix.

If only one bike is used in pit lane all weekend, that maybe where he is going, with replacement bikes due to crashes allowed.

sounds like something to slow everyone down rather than cost cutting.

need more information we do.
