New MotoGP qualification system for 2013

We already know which one will be new rating system for the 2013 season in the MotoGP category of the MotoGP World Championship. For a week, we knew that Dorna was working on a system that would prevent the slower riders from taking advantage of the faster riders to reach better positions in the classification, not because this was illegal but because of the risky situations that were created when they encountered each other. Slow riders on the line waiting for a wheel.

After Motegi's career, the Grand Prix Commission made up of Carmelo Ezpeleta (Dorna), Ignacio Verneda (FIM Executive Director), Herve Poncharal (IRTA) and Takanao Tsubouchi (MSMA) in the presence of Javier Alonso (Dorna) and Mike Trimby (IRTA Secretary) have made public the changes that will regulate this new rating system.

The three free practice sessions (FP1, FP2 and FP3) do not suffer any change in terms of duration or order, although the combined times of the three sessions will form the list of pilots who will be able to participate in the new qualifying sessions, called QP1 and QP2. Before starting the qualifying session, there will be another 30-minute free training session called FP4, which will not be relevant in time.

The ten fastest drivers In this combined classification they will go directly to form part of QP2 while the rest of the pilots will be included in QP1. When this is disputed, the two fastest drivers will be caught and they will be able to participate in QP2 so that there will be a total of 12 drivers fighting for pole position. The rest of the QP2 drivers will occupy the grid positions between number 13 and last depending on the times they have achieved.

The times for the different sessions are distributed as follows:

  • Day one of workouts:
    • Tomorrow

      FP1: 45 minutes

  • Late

    FP2: 45 minutes

  • Day two of workouts:
    • Tomorrow

      FP3: 45 minutes

  • Late
    • FP4: 30 minutes
    • 10 minute break
    • QP1: 15 minutes
    • 10 minute break
    • QP2: 15 minutes

The new regulation tIt will take effect from January 1, 2013 but in addition, another modification of an immediate nature has been made by means of which the season It starts the day after the last race and ends on the same day as the last race.

This system cancels the one that existed until now by means of which the pilots signed from January 1 to December 31 and in some cases, if the pilot changed teams, was banned to be able to carry out the first trainings preseason. Thus all the pilots and scorers will start the year on equal terms.

For example, it occurs to me that neither Yamaha will be able to prevent Ben Spies from getting on the Ducati and neither will Ducati be able to do the same with Valentino Rossi on his return to Yamaha. In satellite equipment this problem used to not exist.
