If a fallen rider cannot be evacuated safely from the track, the race is red-flagged. Motorcycle crashes are usually one of two types: Increased use of traction control has made highsides much less frequent.
The championship is perhaps most closely followed in Italy and Spain , home of many of the more successful riders early in the 21st century.
As for the season, 25 riders of eight nations participated in the premier class of the championship. The Riders' World Championship is awarded to the most successful rider over a season, as determined by a points system based on Grand Prix results.
The British motorcycle Grand Prix was cancelled after the race day warm up, championship points were unaffected.
The following shows the key technical regulations for each class. It was also introduced for the year, that under rule 2. The use of any device on the motorcycle to artificially decrease the temperature of the fuel below ambient temperature is forbidden.
No motorcycle may include such a device. The enormous power advantage of the twice as large displacement four-stroke engine over the half the size two-stroke meant that by the following season, no two-stroke bikes were racing.
MotoGP-class motorcycles are not restricted to any specific engine configuration. However, the number of cylinders employed in the engine determines the motorcycle's permitted minimum weight; the weight of the extra cylinders acts as a form of handicap.
This is necessary because, for a given capacity, an engine with more cylinders is capable of producing more power.
If comparable bore to stroke ratios are employed, an engine with more cylinders will have a greater piston area and a shorter stroke. The increased piston area permits an increase in the total valve area, allowing more air and fuel to be drawn into the engine, and the shorter stroke permits higher revs at the same piston speed, allowing the engine to pump still more air and fuel with the potential to produce more power, but with more fuel consumption too.
In motorcycles were entered with three-, four-and five-cylinder configurations. A six-cylinder engine was proposed by Blata, but it did not reach the MotoGP grids.
Presently four-cylinder engines appear to offer the best compromise between weight, power, and fuel consumption as all competitors in the series use this solution in either 'V' or in-line configuration.
In , the FIM became concerned at the advances in design and engineering that resulted in higher speeds around the race track ; regulation changes related to weight, amount of available fuel and engine capacity were introduced.
From , teams not entered by one of the major manufacturers could seek "claiming rule team" CRT status. Claiming rule team were intended to allow independent teams to be competitive at a lower cost and increase the number of entries in MotoGP.
Claiming rule teams benefitted from less restrictive rules on the number of engines that could be used in a season, and with larger fuel allowances during the races.
Engines are supplied exclusively by Honda, tyres by Dunlop and electronics are limited and supplied only by FIM sanctioned producers with a maximum cost set at EUR.
Carbon brake discs are banned, only steel brake discs are allowed. However, there are no chassis limitations.
Starting in Triumph will replace Honda as the sole supplier of Moto2 engines. Riders in the Moto3 class cannot be older than 28 years, or 25 years for new contracted riders participating for the first time and wild-cards.
Tyre selection is critical, usually done by the individual rider based on bike 'feel' during practice, qualifying and the pre-race warm-up laps on the morning of the race, as well as the predicted weather.
The typical compromise is between grip and longevity—softer compound tyres have more traction, but wear out more quickly; harder compound tyres have less traction, but are more likely to last the entire race.
Conserving rubber throughout a race is a specific skill winning riders acquire. Special 'Q' or qualifying tyres of extreme softness and grip were typically used during grid-qualifying sessions until their use was discontinued at the end of the season, but they lasted typically no longer than one or two laps, though they could deliver higher qualifying speeds.
In wet conditions, special tires 'wets' with full treads are used, but they suffer extreme wear if the track dries out. In new MotoGP regulations limited the number of tyres any rider could use over the practice and qualifying period, and the race itself, to a maximum of 31 tyres 14 fronts and 17 rears per rider.
This introduced a problem of tyre choice versus weather among other factors that challenges riders and teams to optimize their performance on race day.
This factor was greeted with varying degrees of enthusiasm by participants. Rossi, disappointed with and critical of the performance of his Michelin tyres, switched to Bridgestones for and won the world championship in dominant fashion.
Pedrosa switched to Bridgestones during the season. In , the rules were amended to allow more tyres per race weekend—18 fronts and 22 rears for a total of 40 tyres.
The lower number of tyres per weekend was considered a handicap to Michelin riders. For the whole season Bridgestone provided four different specifications of front tyre, six of rear, and a single wet specification—with no qualifying specification.
For each round Bridgestone provided only two specifications for front and rear. Tyres are assigned to riders randomly to assure impartiality.
At the end of the season, Bridgestone withdrew as tyre supplier of MotoGP. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. For other uses, see MotoGP disambiguation.
