Indeed rules are rules, but what Moaner is moaning about this time is that the rule makers can't stop changing the rules. They've only just changed from 800cc to 1000cc and intoduced CRT and they are talking about other rule changes. In order to change the rules you need to know what's wrong with the current rules. That the authorities already want to change to rules suggests a couple of possibilities; Firstly that this is an admission that they didn't do the job right the last time round; Or secondly that they are just changing the rules for the sake of change. When you look at the discussions between Suzuki and Dorna last season you can see pretty clearly that the sticking point was that Suzuki did not think it was financially worthwhile developing a bike for the new 1000cc rules. Now you can blame the world economic situation for that if you like, which is very much what the spin doctors have done. However you have to wonder if it would not have made more sense to make more minor changes to the 800cc rules than to change to 1000cc.

i agree

jolly. you cann't change rules so quickly like that. it's takes lots of money to change, R&D, etc to follow the rules. like i said, they must fire ezpelata.

How about

just having an open class, then different ideas on how to get the fastest lap times an be explored. maybe one team might go for out and out power, but you can guarantee someone will make a sweet handling bike and ride round them on the corners, pick your own cc your own tyre and just race. Now that would be entertaining.! On the whole though I have to agree with Stoner, and by god that hurts.

Totally agree...

If only MotoGP could somehow stick with certain rules there would be more teams and manufacturers on the grid. There might even be a chance that satellite teams become consistent podium contenders. MotoGP is getting so imbalance and boring because of all the changes and not to mention the financial crisis that they're facing. More changes means less expenses. Less changes = better or equal competition.

For once stick with the current set of rules instead of making changes to them the more bikes on the grid the better.

Well it had to happen one day I suppose. I cannot stand moaner, but I totally agree with everything he's said about rule changes. How exactly can the teams save money, when they're constantly changing the rules so they have to redevelop engines, electrics, frames and weight ETC!

It also makes for boring and predictable racing. Why have just one tyre manufacturer? Why have just four cylinder engines? The constant rule chages just make no sense! Now they've realised their mistake at letting CRT bikes compete in motoGP they now need to slow down the factory bikes. Bonkers, just complete bonkers!
