MotoGP » ‘Final say’ for MotoGP software unclear

Pleases, Please,, can you put a ban on F1 being mentioned on here. Can I remind you, and others, that this is a BIKE racing forum. Mentioning F1 drivers ( I refuse to use the word 'car' when talking F1 ) has zero relevance. Mentioning F1 rules has no relevance either. Snooker has rules but nobody mentions them. Beach Volleyball has rules too, nobody mentions them.

MotoGP » MotoGP top speeds ‘medium-term concern’

It's not so much that limiting or reducing the top speed is the issue here, it's the fact that we don't want to see restrictions at all. My own view, having grown up watching 50bhp single cylinder 4 strokes race, is that top speed is not why we watch racing. Apart from Ago's MV and the 2007 Ducati, top speed seldom wins races. Racing is more to do with braking and cornering. Ask yourself why, if top speed is important (to those watching) why does Moto2 and Moto3 eve exist, let alone present better racing.

MotoGP » MotoGP top speeds ‘medium-term concern’

Tetley......3rd reason that the number of gear ratios won't be reduced (from Wikipedia) "In 1969, the FIM , citing high development costs for non-works teams, brought in new rules restricting all classes to six gears and most to two cylinders (four cylinders in the case of the 350 cc and 500 cc classes). This led to a mass walk-out of the sport by the previously highly successful Honda, Suzuki and Yamaha manufacturer teams, skewing the results tables for the next several years, with MV Agusta effectively the only works team left in the sport until Yamaha (1973) and Suzuki (1974) returned with new two-stroke designs."
