This. This is what has made MotoGP virtually unwatchable in the last few years. Teams are stretching out engine life by squashing power output after the first handful of laps. If you sit in the stands and listen, the change in the engine note is obvious. Soon after the note changes, the race becomes a processional. Racing, any form of racing, is about the competition between two machines and their pilots. MotoGP fancies itself as the premier form of two-wheeled racing on the planet, but with races becoming a freight train after seven laps, they can scarcely claim that title any longer. Remove the engine rule. Give the teams an unlimited number of engines. Do this and we could one day see the return of battles like Gibernau and Rossi at Philip Island.
