Back in the day traction control would have been called a misfire! So Rea and Haslam are riding competitive bikes with a bigger induced misfire. Stop trying to compensate riders ability with electrics, I reckon they would have done better without it. I've yet to see a comment saying "electronic control, love it let's have more!!!" No, everyone hates it, but no one listens. WSBK is dying!!! 3 rider per row grids!!!!! What next??

we don't want to see champions who have more money and more sources, we want to see champions who have pure talent and such a skills but as @Wintax ' s said SBK and MotoGP is dying.

HRC probably are not writing the software either, the best HRC could do would be to 'engineer' the configuration of the software to work better for that bike, obviously hrC failed as much as that.

BSB scrapped electronics and it hasn't done them any harm! In fact, the racing in BSB last year was fantastic with riders showing exceptional skill so maybe WSB and MotoGP should do the same!! Electronics have done nowt but cause a shedload of problems all round - get back to basics and let's see proper racing with riders racing like they know they can!!!
