Who has how many engines left? Will it affect the championship?

On a side-note:
I've just read over on motogp.com that the penalties for the infringement of the max-engine-rule have been clarified:

- The rider will start from the back of the grid
- The constructor will be deducted 10 points from its standing in the constructors championship


It's still a big blow in the points for the rider though, in most cases even more severe, because the rider has to start from the back. That's what? 25 points minimal? And how many riders have we seen that can cut back a start from the back of the grid to being a front runner again? I still think it's crap to let a championship be decided in that way as in F1

Actually I can think of one rider that has started from the back of the pack and won a race, but generally speaking it's not going to happen is it, might as well save an engine!

That is going to be the most closely guarded secret in the paddock!

You may be right but of course all of us want to know. I want to have a list in this thread to go by and I'll look around to see if there is any official publication. I'd welcome anyone else's info.

Nope the gear position sensor went so the motor is still okay. Top speed shows it is good also...

Okay a dead thread but wait until Valencia when everyone starts with a fresh engine that only has to last one race and the nerds jack the fuck out of the CPU stuff. You'll see.

Whole engine rule seems to have been a non-issue thus far. I think a performance jack for the last race/last fresh engine is a given - probably more so for a couple of Spanish riders at home.
