F1 » Domenicali warns F1 against ‘self-destruction’

The sad fact is that the automobiles the public can afford are just transportation. Automakers push expensive home entertainment centers on wheels in part because the cars are so boring. They seem to think that if they put any performance in a car it has to cost more than the average person can afford and the governments are not helping with non-engineering politicians and bureaucrats writing the technical laws that manufacturers must adhere to. Governments don't want cars to be anything but a mode of transportation which yields a huge tax revenue stream and criminal fines. Formula One can't do a thing about this and the FIA even abets the bureaucrats!

MotoGP » Honda responds to Production Racer criticism

So Honda built it down to a price and this is the result. Originally Dorna said that all prod racers would have to be bought but Yamaha got the better of Dorna and was able to get through a lease program which is what the factories had enjoyed for years. Dorna saw that the leased bikes were too expensive and teams couldn't afford to go racing with the huge lease prices and that was the beginning of the CRT class. It would be interesting to see what Yamaha gave Dorna to get the old lease concept through again.
