You've hit the nail on the head right there - my posts are on the same theme.
Rider error can only be attributed where it is something the rider has control over. Now the boffins have data on lean angle, G, throttle position, wheel speeds and more things than I could probably ever think of, & 'solutions' for the entire track is mapped into the bike.
The rider is increasingly becoming a damn brave passenger who has most of the decisions taken for him by the software geek who is safely stood in the Pit with his laptop whose input controls the safety and destiny of the pilot risking life and limb on track.
Most fans seem to consider this 'progress'. I consider it to be a corruption of what the sport is meant to be.
