For the last couple of years the MotoGP championship has turned into a tussle between factory teams and the promoter Dorna about the rules that need to be implemented from the 2013 season with a view to fill the rapidly dwindling grid that has been boosted to 21 this year thanks to the CRT rules and teams.  Dorna has been pushing for more rules that would make the racing circuit a level playing field for privateer CRT teams and the factory teams.  But the inability of the factories to  put more teams on the grid has meant that Dorna has slowly gained an upper hand but now Yamaha’s Lin Jarvis claims that both Dorna and the factories are reaching a common ground which will see the adoption of rules that will not be unfavourable to anyone.  That would be good because in all the fighting the biggest casualty has been the quality of racing.
