MotoGP » Qatar podiums mean Ducati race fuel reduced

@grantrd It is NOT prototype racing it is formula racing. A Ducati Desmosedici, you know that old road bike they made way back when, would not be allowed to enter MotoGP because the bore size is too big. It is too technically advanced for the "Prototype" class. Fuel: limited Weight: Limited No of cylinders: Limited Brake size: Limited Forced Induction: Banned Two Strokes & anything other than 4 strokes: Banned Bore Size: Limited Carbon Wheels: Banned The only thing that seems to have no constraints is the amount of electronic garbage that can be piled on. GPS positioning for corner to corner rider aids. What a joke. Only when one of these stupid electronic controls malfunctions at the wrong time and kills a rider will they be taken away. Consider what happened to Pedrosa when his rear wheel sensor was damaged.It creates an out of control accident.

MotoGP » Qatar podiums mean Ducati race fuel reduced

Dorna tried to create a level playing field and stop this out of control electronics war. They proposed one ECU and open software. Honda immediately threatened to quit. Why, because all their road bikes use GPS corner rider aids? No, we had the load of drivel about mpg figures on scooters in Asia. What exactly does that have to do with MotoGP bikes? So Dorna offered a whole pile of inducements to teams that take the Open class option now, since that is the MotoGP of the future. Should Ducati have wasted another year withering on the vine, or move to the class of the future and fix their bike? There will be no "factory" option next year. It is already dead and your point is moot, so what are you bleating about grantrd?
