Dorna should be rolling out the red carpet for them not making it bloody difficult for them.

When will these muppets learn that if MotoGp is survive it needs more manufacturers.

That is exactly what Casey Stoner is saying. Direction of Moto gp. Here is a perfect chance to get a genuine prototype on the grid and dorna wasn't to fart and fiddle regarding bikes 10 seconds slower. Give me a break. Good luck Casey you correct. On this issue.

re: "Here is a perfect chance to get a genuine prototype"

is it...? this is suzuki we're talking about for those that weren't around or haven't been paying attention the past 13 years.

however, by the powers vested in me, i extend them an olive branch. they now have free reign to attend any and all tests to PROVE in front the world they intend to do something OTHER than the curly shuff... er... "CRT wobble".

@AR

I agree with stoner that ever since the switch to 1000cc and the introduction of production bikes on a prototype grid it has changed motogp. At the same time though while I hate them, adding prototypes to the grid was a necessary to stop the grid from shrinking due to cost of competing.

Dorna puzzle me, they seem to have no obvious agenda. Who the hell wants a grid half filled with non-prototypes?! They're lucky Suzuki are even considering a return.

Love the Suzuki though, was a damn good bike in 2010-2011 with huge potential, just needed an alien onboard. Really want to see 2 factory prototypes though instead of just 1 like in 2011.

And Dorna should definitely be taking the most sensible actions to reduce costs.

Motogp needs manufacturers like Suzuki, Kawasaki, Aprilia, all these famous names that aren't even considering taking part in this great sport.
