I think Edwards is missing the point of CRT. The long term plan for CRT is that it's the way Dorna and the FIM want Moto1 to work. Yes, the putative future class. They want to do away with the sport's reliance on a handful of big factories and the way they see of making that work is creating an infrastructure like that in F1. The trouble with this is that F1 has worked like that since day 1, you can't just make MotoGP work like that overnight. So the idea is that CRT is there to concentrate on chassis development without massive engine costs. However there is no doubt that they need to close the performance gap between CRT and the factories gradually over the next few years. If they have a target of say 2017 for the new class then they need the CRT bikes to be as fast as the factories in 2016.
