Honda have been making the rules up in MotoGP for years. These rules forced other manufacturers to quit so Honda had less competition.
This privelege was taken away from HRC at the end of 2011 when they bare-faced lied about an MSMA meeting vote to increase the minimum weight - a proposal made to help CRT close the gap and be more competitive.
Honda regards GP as it's own platform to showcase technology, is not interested in fair/entertaining racing and was unhappy about not getting it's way, so told a bunch of lies and rigged voting results to make it appear others had not agreed to the weight increase - a unanimous NO - when in fact they had agreed.
In what other world championship sport is one competitor allowed to make the rules up for their own advantage? It's like Germany being in charge of international football and giving themselves dispensation to play with 12 players while everyone else is allowed just 11.
Honda cheated..and they lied.
It's like their seamless gearbox. They have a patent on design so nobody else can use the technology..great innit?
The new tyres were the first taste they had of others in GP having a say democratically..against their normal philosophy of rigging the rules to benefit themselves..and they spat the dummy big time. Haha.
Nostro loves Honda..his first bikes were Hondas. He travelled all over the sub continent during a "walkabout" on a Honda, and his favourite riders are Honda riders. He is the epitomy of an Orange Fanboy AND as we know..he hates Valentino Rossi because he stuck two fingers up to Honda.
Do you honestly think Rossi had a private test to try the tyres he speaks of, and without his personal blessing they wouldn't have been introduced? Where is the evidence for this blatent Fanboy conspiracy story?
Exactly..there isn't any, except inside the tiny mind of THE most bias commentator here at MCN.
The likes of CH987 are his fangirl lieutenants..and perpetuate the bitter trolling myth that Rossi is shit, and would have won nothing if the rules were fair.
