Thats the whole idea of road racing mate (GP, F1, V8, NASCAR etc), what your talking about is drag racing which is all about outright speed.

Your as entitled to voice your opinion as much as the next person but at least understand what it is you are talking about

Thats the whole point of road racing (GP, F1, WSBK, V8, NASCAR, IOMTT etc.).

Your thinking of drag racing where the whole point is outright speed.

If stoner left because of this (i doubt it), he stuffed up going to V8s where the situation is the same.

"MM will now probably be the subject of hatred from the Yellow babies now that Stoner has left !!!"

No, MM will be the new hero of the Rossi haters now their hero bailed out and ran away. MM has already doubled his fan base for Rossi haters. Go Mm!

Marc is rightfully deserved of his ride. The Rookie Rule needed to go, as it has stifled great talent in the past, i.e. Spies. Tire allocation and fuel limits are fine with me. I do however wish they'd loosen up on the number of engines. Maybe 9 in total? To have riders sitting around in the pits during practice sessions, saving mileage makes for very boring coverage for the paying fans. Also, a rider losing points, or even the title, due to the fault of a defective timing component or similar is truly tragic. It's true any engine can fail at anytime from the first crank, but 5 engines for 18 races is too few. CRTs should have no engine limits other than fuel. They stand to be no threat to the title regardless of the engine allocation rule.

Marquez is not going to fall as much as people think.

His bike is not a bucking bronco 800 like when Lorenzo came in and the RCV is already way developed chassis and electronics wise.

When Lorenzo came in the bike was new, the Michelins were crap and the electronics were all over the place.
