Agree, let that moffie-race, F1 get the electronics.
The electronics wasn't mentioned in the article and is here to stay, but they can get rid of the wings and ride height devices. While it is all lekker for us, they may have to rethink the 21 race seasons as well.

Silly season is driving me dilly, so I decided to make a few predictions for the coming months and season that will be 100% accurate.

-
- @madmax will continue to think Marky Marks and Marc Marques is, in fact, the same person.

what can i say mark marks is the english translation to marc marques and marky is diminutive form of mark therefore (",)

Those electronics also deploy the ride height devices and I would say it is a rider aid and the best tech team in the pits win( programming the when and how much) Think that and down force wings should go that would make for a better spectator sport and the good riders will benefit

The ride height devices by rule have to me manually operated, are not electronic (can be hydraulic but not electronic or electronically deployed TBMK).

Looks like the front ride height device will be banned next year.

The aero is a problem as it creates dirty air, wish they could ban that as well. Racing just a few years ago was more exciting...

One of the reasons the current WSBK season is way more entertaining! As is Moto3....

But, my name is TheBear, it doesn't become DieBeer if we speak Afrikaans. I see my prediction will hold true. :ROFLMAO:

So, it seems today is the day when Ducati will announce that Bastianini is going to Factory Ducati and Oliviera will join Gresini Ducati on a factory spec bike. I am two minds here. I feel a bit jealous that it isn't BB33 going to a factory spec Ducati.

The FIM Stewards are still in hot water after ruling the Nakagami / Bagnaia / Rins incident a racing incident.

Therein lies the problem. Other riders have been penalised for similar race incidents. The riders are unhappy and it seems their unhappiness is fueled by the FIM Stewards refusing to communicate their reasons, or thinking behind their decisions.
