Dray.... You should wake up and smell the Coffee. As far as racing went this year, and we mean RACING both WsbK AND F1 knocked the MotoGp into the weeds. Add Moto2 as the real racing for the Gp weekend and MotoGp was the WORST racing. The 125's kicked it as always too. A handful of races with 800m of racing doesn't make MotoGp the best. It's the fastest 2 wheel circulation that is true. The greatest racers are in the series but the equipment makes or breaks the results.
Roll on more electronics and the series will become more like the F1 was a couple of seasons ago.
You can't stop teams using everything in the power to make their man win. The winning teams hire the capable winners and thats how Valentino and Mick D could dominate for so long. Both superb riders and superb machinery.
