MotoGP » Honda vows MotoGP withdrawal over ECU plans


And when u take out the competitive elements of motogp, might as well ask, why not stop racing? Why not give the money to the staff as bonuses? Why not invest it in making more bikes and sell more bikes? Which is probably Honda's view. As i repeat, Honda or Yamaha or Suzuki do not need motogp. But will motogp recruit riders? Will motogp hire engineers to make up teams? Will motogp produce bikes? Does motogp have the expertise to produce and run teams? If not, why push manufacturers around with rules?

MotoGP » Honda vows MotoGP withdrawal over ECU plans


ECU determines how the bike runs. Everything on a GP bike has to be synchronised. Having a controlled ECU means teams have to customise EVERYTHING they currently have to work best with the new ECU. Means more research needed. There is no cost saving involved, only more money needs to be spent. Which is fair, as u need to spend money in racing. Lets not kid ourselves into thinking of saving money as far as racing is involved. But where does this new rule lead to? If teams later feel its not feasible, and Dorna change rules again, more money is needed just to go backwards. Just like the control tyre problems, which set some people backwards and more money involved. For goodness sake, let motoGp be motoGpOtherwise make it a 1-make race to please everyone who wants 'fair racing' or feel their skill has been hard done by due to different (inferior) specs. Let the RND stop once and for all in the name of cost saving. Use less rubber to stop wastage.

RFS131: I'll tell you what's more important than the manufacturer, the FAN. If we don't like the state of competition in the sport then it will never survive. Money in my pocket but just the opposite for the manufacturers. So who needs who again?
Motogp the sport needs the fan. As for Honda, probably a small percentage of the millions of moped/ bike riders across the world watch motogp or even know what their achievement was in motogp. Cbr 600s, 900s, 1000s were sold by containers worldwide despite not being represented officially in WSBK for years. Affordable cubs and mopeds were sold by the millions worldwide and there is no moped category in motogp. People continue to buy their bikes because of quality and competitive pricing. How did they achieve that?

MotoGP » Cal Crutchlow - Q&A: Part 2


Dont forget that among the trio at the pointy end of JLo, Pedrosa and MM, JLo was winning much more than Pedrosa did. JLo is the heaviest of them 3. And had it not been for his back to back crashes who knows what might have happened in the championship. He showed that the stop-go hondas can also be beaten by the fast cornering m1 despite brake/ acceleration disadvantage. The variety of winners also showed that there are stop-go tracks and there are flowing circuits in the championship series that will bring out the best of each style. Nevertheless, its also frustrating to see rules that try to level playing field but actually has a reverse effect.
