Fans Express Concern Over Future of MotoGP

Formula 1's owners have made headlines with their massive £3.6 billion acquisition of MotoGP, the two-wheeled sport's main series. However, many MotoGP enthusiasts are not thrilled with the change, fearing that the sport may become "boring" like F1 under the new ownership.

Fears of Predictability and Reduced Overtaking

Some fans are expressing concerns that MotoGP could become more predictable like F1, leading to a potential decrease in overtaking opportunities. The emphasis on financial advantages in the new owners' statements has also raised red flags among fans.

Divided Reactions from Fans

While some fans are lamenting the potential changes, others are blaming F1's predictability on the FIA rather than its owners. The acquisition has sparked a mix of reactions, with some fans offering condolences to their beloved sport.

Future Plans and Expectations

Despite the backlash, the new owners have vowed to "grow" MotoGP and enhance the sport for fans, teams, and commercial partners. With plans to acquire a majority stake in Dorna by 2024, the new owners are optimistic about the future of MotoGP.

Frequently Asked Questions

What materials do Formula 1 cars’ chassis typically consist of?

Carbon composites is the primary material used in Formula 1 chassis. The material is preferred for its strength-toweight ratio. It offers exceptional rigidity and low weight. Aluminum and titanium can also be used as specific components. Advanced materials and honeycomb structures, however, are added to enhance structural efficiency.

How do the rules of Formula 1 influence car design and technology?

The Formula 1 regulations or rules set forth by the FIA has a significant impact on vehicle design and technology. These regulations specify parameters for vehicle dimensions, engine specifications, aerodynamic elements, safety features, and more. To stay competitive, teams must innovate constantly within these limitations. The sport’s rules evolve to support closer racing, safer advancements and sustainability goals.

What is the significance of hybrid technology in Formula 1 engines?

The Energy Recovery System, also known as hybrid technology in Formula 1, is important because it improves the engine’s efficiency and performance. ERS stores energy that is normally lost when braking or dissipating heat. The system allows drivers to use additional power provided by a kinetic-energy recovery system (KERS) or a heat-energy recovery system.

How has Formula 1’s ‘DRS’ system improved the overtaking?

Drag Reduction System in Formula 1 reduces aerodynamic drag to enhance overtaking. The flap on the rear wing can open when certain conditions are met, such as when the car behind is within a second. This reduces the downforce, increasing speed while facilitating passing maneuvers. DRS can help overcome aerodynamic turbulence caused by the leading car. This can make overtaking more difficult.


  • Since the hybrid power units were introduced in 2014, thermal efficiency has increased from around 29% to surpass 50%, a remarkable figure compared to standard road car engines.
  • The halo device introduced into Formula 1 in 2018 is designed to withstand the equivalent weight of a London double-decker bus.
  • The minimum weight for a Formula 1 car, including the driver but excluding fuel, is set at 752 kg for the 2023 season.
  • Modern Formula 1 car chassis are required to withstand a frontal crash test with a peak deceleration of no more than 25 g.
  • Formula 1 races on average have over 300 sensors on a car, generating more than 1.5 billion data points over a race weekend.
  • Formula 1 engines can rev up to 15,000 RPM, a decrease from the 18,000 RPM limit set prior to the 2014 regulation changes.
  • In 2021, Formula 1 announced its plan to have a net-zero carbon footprint by 2030, which includes the cars, on-track activities, and the rest of the operations.
  • A Formula 1 steering wheel is one of the most complex components of the car, costing up to $50,000 to produce.

How To

How to Appreciate F1 Power Units

To appreciate the engineering of the Formula 1 power unit, you must understand its components: internal combustion engine (ICE), Turbochargers, MGUK, MGUH, and Energy Store. The ICE is a highly efficient hybrid engine designed for performance and energy recovery. Investigate the way these components combine to produce energy and how systems of energy recovery can enhance efficiency. Familiarize yourself with the current regulations that guide power unit development to appreciate the innovation in Formula 1 engineering.
