Tom the best engineers will have all 6 engines with out a mile left in them at the end of the season. I don't understand how you can think that every engineer will get it 100% right. I bet not one of them ever got 100% in an engineering exam which is a static test let alone the dynamic test that a MotoGP season is.

Like i said, a few issues will always arise but how many people failed on the engine allocation in the second half of last year? And look at F1, sometimes people need extra engines but in the most part the engineers know what they are doing.

Or in another Quixotic Dorna cost-cutting measure - they will break all the other rider's legs to even out the field.

I bet they are madly coming up with a reason why the next 3 races need to be postponed. "Oh shit there is a cloud over Heathrow and it looks a bit grey, It might rain, better postpone the race!!" Or maybe we will get some crazy Rossi fan call in a fake terrorist attack at Silverstone. No that would never happen because there are no 'crazy' Rossi fans!!

yeah, becausae it's there fault if the rider puts the bike in the gravel and knackers an engine or the rider misses a gear and damages the engine. also this is prototype racing where they now for the first time only have a third of the engines they would normally have.



What do you call a 'freak' accident ?
