I still think its an absolute mountain to climb for Yamaha (or anyone) to match Honda's data and budget, R&D advantages when trying to make a bike to maximise 20L of fuel and just 5 engines over a season. These measures don't CUT costs, they create HUGE technical issues that demand VAST resources to optimise - which means HRC hold all the cards. I'm hoping that (even if its for 1 season before Carmelo picks up his backhander & restores the status quo) that Aprilia rock up with a spec ECU and 24 Litres of juice a properly tidy pilot (Hayden?) and really put the cat among the pigeons and put HRC & Yam on the back foot. It'd be great for the racing and for the series to prove that the technical rules as they are now are a lunatic menace and a benefit only really to HRC, NOT MotoGP as a whole. MotoGP NEEDS very even bikes which need rider skill NOT geek skills to restore the show & proper RACING.
