"It's not a huge problem UNLESS you break one".

But that's a huge IF.
Why introducing these rules that leave more room for pure luck to play a role?

We want riders to win because of ability, not because they were lucky enough not to break an engine...

It seems like Dorna just want to keep making it more and more expensive for the manufacturers to compete in MotoGP.

But we all know what rules are made for, and its not saving costs, or making racing more safe.

The longer this goes on, the more political it gets and who gets what favor and which rules get bent for which team/rider.

Carmelo E has a strange way to get entertainment back instead of good quality racing he wants the bikes to have a big bang, followed by some white trails of smoke and some oil on the track.
Like I said earlier stop drinking Carmelo!

Honda use to force rules because they hace more capacity to adapt changes, even more if is about technique sustent by money...

Engine limits seemed to hurt ducati more than honda or yamaha.....If a rider loses an engine from a crash which is not his fault,then it seems unfair if that engine counts.

It was a trade-off between Dorna and the MSMA.
Five engines instead of six, and MotoGP bikes don't have to use the mandatory spec ECU in 2014 and a new rev limit wasn't imposed.
