Olympics Games – The MotoGP World Championship starts again. Although the time is not the most happy. Because we are in full Olympics Games period. Superbikes Championship decided to “commit suicide” closing last July 10 at Laguna Seca. It returns only on September 18 in Germany after 68 days of holidays.
We think that the first articles on Superbike must be a trick briefs to remind viewers and readers what was going on before the “blackout”. However, this year’s Superbike Championship is not important. They are already thinking to 2017 World Championship with the arrival of Melandri and Bradl. But the Superbike is another problem.
Let’s talk instead of returning to the MotoGP on track. Next Sunday, in Austria. The final race of the MotoGP World Championship was the Sachsenring, July 17. Then, holidays. Three weeks. They return, but the Olympics Games are playing. Finally, on 21 August, the end of the Olympic Games, there will be the Czech Republic GP. Much more intelligently the F1. It appears again only the August 28 at Spa, in Belgium. A non-random choice. Great attention to the choice of spaces.
Olympics Games and F1 create Problems to MotoGP
In addition, the Formula 1 must organize 21 GP and not only 18. Calendars are a difficult exercise to realize. Even more for anyone involved in motorcycling since you should try not to overlap with the F1 has to manage two Championships. It’s complicated. Let’s see what they do in 2016. The MotoGP-F1’s concomitants are 7 of 18 races. They could do better.
Even taking into account that you were unable even to avoid stringing two Grands Prix in full Olympics Games in Rio. In the meantime, Let’s enjoy Sunday’s race in Austria. The 2016 title race starts again. Marquez will defend his points advantage against Lorenzo and Rossi. The two Yamaha riders still believe in the 2016 title. Especially after the interview of President Yanagi. The Japanese strongly believe in his motorcycle and in his great couple.
