I wonder if this is going to work?

Honda can set up "Honda Technologies" or something similar and offload all the R&D to another division within Honda.

And then later just transfer the knowledge back into the motogp team?

I trust Dorna will lead by example and cut their operating costs by 50% pa. They can start with Carmelo Ezpeleta salary.
The saving the could be given back the the teams on an inverse market capitalisation basis

I wonder if he's thought about how much it costs to move this circus around the world each year. To cut costs by 25M euros I guess there won't be any room for fly away rounds anymore. Is he planning on taking this back to a Euro only series?

Your dumbest namedropping post yet, if he did work for PwC he would have them running around on C90's.
When did you last order machined crankcases? as you seemed to think you have the answers.

People read even this post more carefully.

It doesn't include rider saleries and it wont include the travel, for a start Dorna charter 3 TNT planes to transport the bikes and all the equipment, then transport them to the track.

is there really any team in bsb spending more than 1 million,and the racing is top drawer,entertaining,and likely better this year,moto gp is an out of control cash monster,and the racing comes a very poor second,it should change someway,the way things are going in the world with money,teams are going to struggle to get 5 million to race with in the near future
