Ducati’s MotoGP technical chief Gigi Dall’Igna believes introducing a one-bike rule to the championship would have significant benefits.

The bearded enigma thinks that everything to assist MotoGP out of the pandemic crisis needs to be done and the money saved from only running one bike would be significant.

“I am a technician, I like to progress. In the past I have been against all proposals that limit development,” said Dall’Igna.

But now things are totally different. Our future is a stake on reducing costs.”

MotoGP team bosses at all levels will need to reduce costs in the future as for the moment, there is money pouring out and not a lot coming in. Savings will need to be made for the rest of this and the 2021 seasons.

“I am thinking of using a single bike per rider in MotoGP. At the moment, we are the only category that has two and it does not seem to me that the show in the others is less.

“Having one bike would lead to significant savings, starting with that of spare parts not only for manufacturers but also for independent teams.”
