I would like to see a level playing field, not one where spanish riders get millions more euros from their broke, corrupt banks than all the other riders put together.

Seriously, just how much does it cost to change your chassis like your underpants ?

Marquez in particular has a massive advantage, better riders get overlooked on lesser bikes, overfunded undertalented riders like dani get to waste factory bikes for years because they will win something sooner or later... all because of their nationality, nothing else.

Having the spanish company dorna run the show is wrecking MOTOGP.

"this is actually not allowed in the rules"
Which article number is that then?

Those who moan about the Spanish getting better sponsorship, that is because the sport is big over there and their riders are better.
Nobody moans about WSB being full of Brits.

Their riders aren't necessarily better to start with. They are better sponsored and grow up on GP machinery. And yes, that is because bikes are more of a national sport in Spain hence the involvement of the banks.

true @wtf
this "controlled" class is anything but fair. No one will get the same chassis as Marquez. Dorna/HRC, they are probably the same company, have insured that the chosen one stays in the lime-light until his seat at Repsol is ready.

If Dani Pedrosa was not talented he would not hold as many lap records as he does. You guys who hate on Pedrosa have been sitting on sour grapes since 2006, seriously, find a new hobby or get a life.

Having personally visited FTR's facility, and seeing how many light years ahead the Suter set up is, it doesn't surprise me that riders are starting to switch to what seems like a better 'feeling' chassis of the suter. Their development program's are akin to formula 1 chassis. FTR's set up isnt in the same league!
