"The main thing is to have more competitive races. If we can do that with more manufacturers than all the better, but having competitive bikes is the key."
Which argues against limiting each factory to four bikes. It wouldn't matter how many bikes any given factory entered just so long as the races are interesting. So if the three factories we have want to enter more than four bikes each and can afford to do so, why stop them?
Yes I know it was strongly rumoured that the four bike rule was introduced as a sop to those teams who wanted to retain the rookie rule, but the rookie rule was bloody stupid. It had potential to actually restrict competition and excitement and only lasted for three seasons. It should have been killed off and there was no need to offer anything to those who wanted to keep it.
Perhaps one good idea would be to try to encourage Suzuki and Kawasaki to come back as engine suppliers. And to get BMW, Aprillia and anybody else who could make the grade to join in too.
