Who doesn’t know MotoGP? Everyone knows both children and adults. MotoGP is one of the greatest racing sports in the world because it uses motorcycles with special technology that is not traded publicly.
Since a long time ago, MotoGP is very popular because it presents a lot of interesting actions carried out by the racers on the track. It is not uncommon for us as spectators to see the overtaking maneuvers between racers.
In the past, all riders were almost competitive and they were able to compete in all series, the gap between riders was also not too far away. Everyone has the same opportunity to win.
We realize that as time goes by and the development of technology there will definitely be a change in a better direction. But we really do not expect if that change also occurs to the level of competitiveness of the MotoGP riders themselves.
As we know that Marquez is one of the fastest racers in MotoGP at the moment, maybe even the only one. He always appears competitive on all circuits, in every race, and everyone knows that he will win.
If in the past MotoGP was very interesting, it’s different from the current situation, nowadays everything has been changed, even it can be said that MotoGP is boring. When watching MotoGP we feel like watching a chess tournament. From the beginning until the end of the race, we rarely find the action of overtaking between riders.
As an audience, we can predict who will win, and when there will be overtaking drama. Yes, we all know that Marquez will win. Even though during the race he was still in second place and as if he was chasing the rider in front of him, but we already know that he will win the race because he will put pressure on the last lap. Often he runaway left the other riders with huge gape time between him and the riders behind him, and he always did that in almost every race, very boring.
Because of that, every time we watch MotoGP, we don’t need to watch from the beginning to the end. We only need to turn on the TV when the race starts, then turn off the TV and then turn on the TV again when the race is almost done because in the middle of the race there was no interesting action. With that way, we can save on electricity bills.
Dorna as the MotoGP promoter must immediately take the action to do something to correct this problem as they once did. In the past, Dorna uniformed the ECU with the aim that all riders could compete in the front row. So, all teams must use the same ECU recommended by Dorna, and the ECU brand is Magneti Marelli. But now, what happened? Is that goal’s running as what they wanted? See reality now!
“We do not demand that all racers or teams are able to be competitive, because we are aware that every racer and team has different abilities”. But it is very strange if from 22 racers only one racer who almost wins in every race, in this case, the example is Marc Marquez. In this season Marquez never finished outside the top two, he only once did not enter the podium when he fell in the American MotoGP.
Is it wrong if Marquez always wins? Of course, the answer is NO! But why only Marquez? Whereas his teammate who uses the same bike can’t compete like Marquez even though he’s a three times world champion?
We are happy if Marquez wins, even the world champions. But that’s not all we want, we want an interesting spectacle even though we know that racing is not drama. Please, give back the old MotoGP!
