The engines are specific to the rider, if Jorge used Bens in any session and was cought, Jorge and possibly Ben too, would be disqaulified from the race at the very least, and Jorge's engines are probably better spec to boot.

Yamaha dont need to get all the engines to the end of the season either, with his gap at the moment, barring any disasters he will probably wrap the championship up at Phillip Island or even Sepang. In which case he can start the last race from pit lane, without effecting the championship.

He does almost have 2 race wins lead afterall

Excuse my ignorance regarding the new super bike using motogp tech, but isnt this the claim by all gp purists that gp is were the tech development of road bikes comes from?

Why is this such big news?

Normally the tech is sanatized for the road, this sounds like it wont be, probably be lighter, twichier, more nimble then your 'average' street bike, or to put it another way, closer to a 'real' race bike.

Jorge will crash, or his engine will damage, and the balance will restored. From that zero fair point again, they will combat hands to hands. If Honda gonna build a hyper bike, i'm sure the topspeed is always around 186 mph.

Well, come on...the Ducati conspiracy theory is funny..
1. Abraham really had a problem. To avoid issues it was his responsibility to flag this...its load of crap to pin this on him. If Pedrosa's engine stalls on the grid before the lights go out, he'll act accordingly.
2.Tyrewarmers are a reflex. It could have taken more time to restart and they are important to avoid cooler tyres. We've seen enough 1st corner crashes.
3.This "the wheel was blocked but Honda was able to pushe the bike of the grid" is 100% Honda's team error. "we still don't know why"...probably because there was nothing
4. Finally Pedrosa leaving for the warm-up grid on his speed limiter because they enabled this in de pit...well another screw-up.
5. Then Barbera...well I guess :wrong time wrong place. Barbera needed a little more room which was taken by dan's rearwheel...

If 3+4 would not have happened, 5 would not have happened. Passing 10 bikes in a few corners can cause "issues" like this...Some may not have real

I don't know what Pedrosa really feels.
Except that he surely feels like crap.
Championship just slipped from his hand by pure bad luck.

But he still maintained himself.
That shows character
