That cocksucker Ezpeleta can't get it through his fucking head that racing is a speed contest, not a fuel efficiency contest.
MotoGP is over, but Dorna has figured out a way to milk it for a while longer before the whole thing collapses.
The fuel limit backfired. Instead of making the race more competitive, it killed the threat of competition to any of the front runners.
Greedy bastards and fucking idiots are running the show.
Hasta la vista.
The fuel limits are in place at the instigation of the manufacturers.
To justify the giant racing budgets they need to show something is being learned that applies to street bikes. Exploration of the interplay between electronics and fuel consumption in performance machinery is something that justifies those budgets.

Your anger at Dorna regarding this one is misplaced.
