I suppose it makes sense that they double up and keep it in Europe. We may see some lap records smashed with double the track time!

All Yamaha riders are on their 4th or 5TH ENGINES already. Obviously they have had some serious issues. It blows the Championship wide open.

Not sure on those figures Duke unless they have used more engines this weekend which would be very serious. At the 1st round Vinales had used 3 engines and Rossi 2 engines is my understanding.

There is only an allocation of 5 engines for 2020 so not good and obviously serious if all Yamaha riders had used their full allocation or had just 1 engine remaining. I believe they said revs maybe restricted for this round im an effort to help, which is a huge blow as their already down on top speed.

If its a narrowed down to a defective component I imagine they will get a dispensation like Aprilia did, based on the safety grounds.

I can't see them getting a dispensation, every other team would protest and rightly so.

Sounds like the factory hasn't got a clue whats going on or got any idea on a fix, as before the event this weekend Vinales was 3 and Rossi 2 engines used.

Suggested rev restriction doesn't seem to be having the effect they desired.

I belive Aprilla did on the basis of safety grounds.

If its a proven manufacturing defect and not a design issue it would seem reasonable to me. Must be something in the rule book to cover it.

MM93 back in hospital today to have the plate replaced as they are reporting it has not been sufficient.

I still think he should not have been allowed to attempt to race at Jerez. His and other riders safety should have been given priority.
