MotoGP » Race direction explains Iannone start line incident


Yes you can bleat and moan all you like, just like Honda, but these are the rules and this is the way it is going to be. If Honda don't like it then they can make good on their threat and leave. Ducati will lose their concession this year or next anyway, and Suzuki and Aprilia will still have the benefit of them then you will whinge about that. In 2012 Ducati were forced to reduce their bore size to 81mm to comply with the rules. Did they threaten to quit MotoGP? No, they followed the rules. Honda made their bed now they can lie in it.

MotoGP » Race direction explains Iannone start line incident


@HappyT Factory class is dead. It would have been dead a lot sooner but Honda threatened to quit MotoGP if they weren't allowed to keep their army of electronics technicians and associated software. In any case all of your upper case FACTORY points are moot. There is only going to be one class and that is open. Concessions will be allowed for Honda or any other team that is struggling. Ducati did the smart thing and jumped to Open sooner than later. Then Dorna had to change the rules again to have a Factory-Open class because Honda were crying. Ducati did not ask to change any rules. They just followed them. As for Suzuki, do you think it make sense to force them to go to FACTORY class for half a season and then change back to Open? Suzuki and Aprilia have come back in because they have the chance to work on their bike before Open class becomes the norm. Under your proposal where they "should also have to comply" with FACTORY stupidity they would never have entered in the first place.

MotoGP » Race direction explains Iannone start line incident


What is a looser class? Is that the opposite of a tighter class? Ducati did not try to sneak in anything. Here are some quotes. During the off season Dorna told Magneti Marelli to upgrade their software to help the Open bike. “We asked, like everyone, for some modification on the software, some improvement, based on the experience. We ask to Dorna, and we ask for improvement to traction control and anti-wheelie,” said Dall’Igna, “We have dangled all these carrots with the intention of getting the factories to seriously consider changing to Open rules, running the Dorna software,” says MotoGP Race Director Mike Webb.

MotoGP » Dovi: Now the podium is not enough


Yes, I am a bigger fool than anyone could have expected . . . Poor Honda and poor Yamaha they have lost ummm. I'm sorry what have they lost again? Oh I remember they lost the MotoGP series in it's death throes with 15 bikes on the grid and the possibility of only two manufacturers. What else could Dorna do? Electronics were a path to self destruction. If Ducati do score a few hollow victories, as you prefer to see them, then they lose more concessions and at the rate that Dorna are willing to continue removing concessions it will soon be moot.
