What ruined motoGP was the introduction of electronic aids in 2007.
That meant that instead of paying guys with grease on their hands WE all now need to pay guys who labour away on computers. The latter costs mega bucks. Hence the exit of Kawasaki and Suzuki. Ducati should have left too and probably will in the not so distant future. Remember what the boss said? Ducati remains Ducati so no extra tooling machines or money which means slower development than Yamaha and Honda. When was the last time a satellite rider won a race?

Why not slow down the WSBs by changing the fuel or tyres? Then motoGP can ditch the electronics and we get more race winners. There are teams now in motoGP who are there just to advertise. Moving banners.
