MotoGP » Lorenzo: Force riders to pit in the rain

No doubt if Lorenzo had swapped bikes in Valencia and come out on top instead this ridiculous idea would never have surfaced in the first place. Next I suppose he'll want a maximum speed limit for corners prone to low-sides, and perhaps have a bottleneck system setup on the first lap forcing all riders to enter single-file into turn one in order of qualifying.

Polyccio: He also tried to get Rossi issued with a penalty point at the last race for 'getting a tow' in quali. I wonder what Lin thought about that one???
I missed that bit of reporting - did he really?

MotoGP » Michelin front main question for 2016

I'd like to see multiple tyre manufacturers in MotoGP who are required to provide a fixed allocation of tyres at each round (for example soft, medium and hard). That way the old days of last minute tyres being produced for qualifying or race day will be over, but it will still provide a competitive format for the brands to showcase their rubber. As an additional side effect Lin Jarvis can avoid ridiculously cumbersome and mandatory logistical nightmares.

BSB » Hopkins impresses on competitive return in Spain

Gotta agree with PatrickD, Hopper's a class act no doubt, and he obviously has world class potential - he demonstrated that in GP and WSBK. But if he'd been in a better position last year, who would Suzuki take to partner Laverty in WSBK? Obviously you're gonna go for the young gun Lowes, he's got talent, potential, a lot of time to go and few injuries to deal with. Hopper's a great bloke and awesome rider, but he's got less and less time ahread of him. I reckon he should bag the BSB title a couple of times, or maybe even go for a record five if he can handle it, then go join Randy for testing and the odd wildcard.

MotoGP » Honda responds to Ducati’s Open decision

I can see where Honda are coming from, in that the Open class is an evolution of CRT - a category designed to allow cheaper bikes on the grid in the absence of manufacturers. That said, everyone must have seen which way the wind was blowing the moment they announced Yonny on an Open Desmo. And whilst perhaps not in the spirit of the original CRT intention, its none-the-less within the rules. I personally don't think they should make any more rule changes to ECU requirements. If Honda are adamant they want to develop a superior electronics package let them try - we'll see how long they can stay competitive when other factories like Ducati and potentially Aprilla/Suzuki, are running circles round them on an advanced (but cut-price) ECU with greater fuel and tyre benefits. It won't happen this year, but if everything stayed the same I could envisage Ducati with another championship by 2016. The only dubious part is how much of Ducati's software made it into the Open ECU?
