I want to piggy back your thread here jd9.....the shyt storm at FIM is just starting it seems.

Rossi has the stir stick out....I love it when the riders tell it how it is. The FIM will see to it Rossi doesn't win another race if he keeps this up...FIM is a political hornets nest right now. IMO

I had a feeling Ducati was lamenting in the ears of FIM. This was something I read into when reading the preliminary information about the rules changes.

I hate it when the dick measuring screws the racing up for everyone.

Yeap... I bet you're right. Personally, I thought it was fine to let Ducati go open class and give them a year or two to get competitive with Honda and Yamaha.
Just had a thought - I wonder if Honda would like their RCV1000R to beat the factory Ducati's.

It just seems like they've gone way over the top on what teams get what equipment, what electronics, what tires, how much fuel, etc. I could see if it was an honest effort to try to level the playing field. But then they go and complicate it with conditions about what class the rider can stay in depending on whether he wins a race, or how many podiums he wins, then being locked into a different class until 2016. Wtf?
Way to much thinking going on here - I wish they'd simplify the rules and just let the guys race. I can't think of another sport where they change the rules as often as MotoGP does.

What a race , the new rules are cool making the MotoGP racing more interesting . The guys have to ride around those new Bridgestone tires . Rossi rode the wheels off his M1 . I thought it was a great race today . Old Rossi looked awesome at a ripe old age . The kid rode the wheels off that bike as well

Except were the riders who were on the softer compounds seem to have cooked their tires and wrecked.

Its a nice start...unless your name is Lorenzo,
