MotoGP » VIDEO: Iannone - The Ducati is fantastic!

There has to be some equity somewhere. In the case of the Factory 2 the real benefit is the number of engines so they can actually develop a better motorcycle, and as we see it did seem to work. They have to have some sort of incentive to return to full factory and the only real advantage is the harder tire. But they would be fools to give up the development advantages Factory 2 gives until the bike is very sorted out. But that being said, when the bike is ready they will want a tire that will last the race. Good incentive.

MotoGP » Rossi: New Ducati ‘fast’, tyre rule ‘unfair’

@Joeski, I think VR has always cared about the open rule/concession of the softer tire. It means they have an advantage by being able to put in a fast lap and qualify better. Which in turn means that the "Open/Factory2" bike is in the way. And in case anyone hasn't noticed, Dovi for example is extremely hard to get around, and he has a tendency once they do get around him, fight back and possibly re-pass, then slow down to recover from his burst of speed, making the gap to the leaders even wider.

The term "Giant Killer" is always good for sales, and pays big dividends. That is why many compete, although they know it isn't all together fair.
