Seems to me that the ECU just provides the facility (& this ECU is clearly top kit) - its the Software loaded that is the key element. So, the spec ECU won't hold back a factory team one iota - only the fuel restriction will do that? If the software is as uber-sophisticated (or more so) as it is now (meaning that the bikes can be set up for every inch of track, and the system can compensate for a myriad things to optimise the bike throughout the race on the fly?) then the ECU solves next to nothing? If my laymans understanding is correct, then MotoGP will remain boring and processional as long as multiple & adaptable software maps, gyros, timers, sensors and adjustments etc. are optimising the bike constantly. Why? As there is next to no room for the riders skill (or mistakes) to come into play to gain or lose advantage. If so, what's the point of it?
