my comment has quite a lot to do with what stoner is talking about , it describes my opinion of why todays rules are the way they are and why stoner has a valid argument to point them out .
you say his comments are not good for the sport , thats only your opinion also , all riders have a right to voice there opinions as well as us mate.
who are you to say otherwise?

@ belly pain....Totally agree it's a bit like when Rossi was complaining about not having Bridgestones when Casey was beating him.
Anyway how dare the other riders complain as well....not fair is it mate.
By the way dont you think it could be because this year it is different bikes and tyres, or havent you realized that yet.

i can't say if they should change it or not because i'm not the one who has to go out there and race in motogp .
but stoner dose have to , so i think he has a right to voice his opinion on what he feels is the best choice.

He has a good point and should be allowed in all conditions. Slick to Wet, Wet to Slick, Wet to Wet and Slick to Slick.

The rules must be about improving the show and getting as many bikes out on the track racing!

Any rider coming in has to overcome the time lost.

Look at Brock Parkes in WSS at Imola, Qual'd on front row, went backwards in race, swapped tyres, set fastest lap. He got a dodgy set of tyres for the start.

In your last post you wrote
"my comment has quite a lot to do with what stoner is talking about ,"
I told you you were of topic and you gave it to me.
Your last post total contradicts what you said.
Answer (or give your opinion) the question I asked about this topic, or I will know your just a Stoner fangirl.

The ONLY reason flag-flag racing came about is for entertainment. It's got nothing to do with rider safety, racing integrity or anything else other than for improving the saleability (to maximise profit) for Dorna when they offer the TV rights for sale.

The old system much much safer for the riders but I remember some riders abusing that system as well.

I agree that once it's declared a wet race, then you should be able to come in and swap to a bike that's got the right tyres for the conditions. I want to see racing, not the fuel/tyre nursing game which has become F1. Sure the rules are the same for everyone but it becomes a lottery.

If they want mixed up final results based on luck, why not just have QP3, then every rider gets to pull their race result out of a hat in the order in which they qualified ??

@@ dacron.
i couldn't care any less if you thought i was justin bieber mate!
its very hard to know exactly what question you refer to as so far spineless you keeps commenting under any name other than your own.
i will pic the tire change rule as one of yours.
now stoner was asked specifically if he would like a rule that lets him change bikes with the same type of tire (he never brought it up) , i also think its a good rule as it gives no advantage to anyone other than those smart enough to make the right choice.
dorna is aware who will make the right choices in such a rule and still be stuck with riders a mile in front , this goes with my comment that got you all sooky at the beginning...cry on troller.
