Number 1 is good close racing.

A close number 2 is technology.

A close number 3 is many manufacturers fighting for the wins and WC.

And comparing motoGP to F1 is ridiculous Ezpeleta.

I don't care about the rich guys who own the controlling shares in Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki etc. I just want the spectakle back!

Computer nerds deciding who wins? Joke.

As Rossi proved, even with computers, its still about the rider. He took a race winning machine to the depths of failure for two seasons.

Hurry up Suzuki! We need more bikes out there to keep talent flowing into the series

If MOTOGP is to survive it need the likes of Suzuki like a shot in the arm.

Hopefully this will serve as a inspiration for other manufactures to jump on board.

Younger fans will not remember the Suzuki glory days. They were a top contender and can be again. We need Kawasaki back too. The cost of running a team has gone through the roof and into another galaxy.

12 agree. 12 disagree.

...stoner also proved this by jumping on a honda and looking invincible (while competitors were injured) and then the very next year looking all at sea. A repeat of his feat at ducati...a one hit wonder that was lucky enough to get a second factory ride.

As KR senior said in an interview about GP back in 08, the jury is out on stoner while time will tell if he was in the right place at the right time. Wise words in deed and confirmed by time.

Sete Gibernau took victory at Valencia in 2001 which was after 2000 & before Vermuelan's win in 2007. People seem to forget about that race even though it was brilliant.

I think in Rossi's case he showed that computers are more of an influence in the outcome of a race than rider input nowadays.

In the current (and foreseeable) global climate I can't see more Mfrs making the series 'more comepetitive'. Its just too expensive, and Honda & Yamaha have got too much data and resources and very well sorted set-ups and packages. Limited budgets and testing mean they get to keep an edge others can't match IMO.
I also don't think that the comparison with F1 is wrong either - F1 was a boring procession but F1 management has control of F1 (i.e. NOT the mfrs), so they were able to introduce successful measures to get better racing, while MotoGP cannot (due to the Mfrs power in the series).
MotoGP would be better off with NO Factory teams rather than just 2 that are miles ahead of anyone else - Suzuki (any other Mfr fool enough to join) will simply beef up the midfield IMO.
