prof-x. I'm sure that your comments are valid, but equally what you can say about the control tyres is that the vital connection between track & bike is identical for all bikes. The fact that Honda & Yamaha's bikes use those tyres better than the Ducati means that Ducati need to develop their bike to work with a known constant. The fact that the testing restrictions make that job ridiculously hard to do is what means that HRC & Yam (who have already got sorted chassis to go with their megabucks) have that advantage protected. The 'status quo' is that any mfr's entering MotGP or in MotoGP but behind in terms of development are hamstrung by the rules from having a proper opportunity to GET competitive. I think your Rockefeller quote is pertinent to HRC & Yam too - they like things just as they are, whereby their advantage is ring-fenced by the rules so the staus quo remains with them in ascendancy IMO.
