Brand Sport Weekend: MotoGP is already promoting measures so that there is even more show
Carmelo EzpeletaCEO of dornathe company that organizes the MotoGP World Championship, was the visible head of the tribute that MARCA wanted to pay to the Spanish company for its 30 years managing the event during the MARCA Sports Weekend in Malaga.
The leader was present at a discussion table with Jorge Lorenzo and Ana Carrasco to comment on the evolution of the championship. “I haven’t missed any. I remember almost every moment of these 30 years. There are many, but it is never enough. Me I see all the races. The important thing is the drivers, to make our sport better”, he stated.
The senior manager confessed that there is already more than an outline of the 2023 World Cup, which will not start in Qatar. “We already have the calendar more or less”, said. And he recognized that variations can be made to help the show even more. “Now we have regulatory stability. In 2022 a period began until 2026. In theory, it does not change except for security or because all parties agree. We have the objective that the benefits from 2027 are reduced. In 2024, already 60 percent will be sustainable gasoline. We are forcing the wings issue with the teams“, he blurted out.
The MotoGP boss thinks differently from several riders and believes that there is no shortage of passes in the event. “Overtakings? It is difficult for there to be more. Overtaking problems we have never had. There are two parameters: safety and two sustainability: more efficient engines and economic sustainability of the championship. How many teams have been and have disappeared? Now private teams can sustainably run,” he analyzed.
Best World Cup
Ezpeleta stressed that the current championship is much better than the one that Dorna took. “The level of the World Championship today was unthinkable in the eighties. Then, there were some drivers that were not so good. Now, they are all good and some are extraordinary. What has changed is that there are more competitive people. There is no longer anyone who is not very good. Then there are other things, like luck: in a fall you can do something to yourself or not, “he explained.
