The complaints were based on technicalities, and not because there were only two brands competing with Factory rules. Dorna didn't bother. On the contrary they were happy!
And come on, does anyone really thinks that any of the pilots in the Open class have a real shot at winning the championship even with all those advantages?
Take a closer look:
Bikes - they are all running inferior machines (Ducati's TT - older Yammy - Honda slow RCV and old CRT's)
Teams - they are all running with inferior software (it has been said that apart the Ducati team no one knows how to handle the new and improved software)
Riders - they are no "aliens". Put them on the same factory bikes as the really fast guys and they will get beaten by them.
Not a chance.
Truth is Open bikes don't have a chance in winning a single race, let alone the championship. And if it rains or every factory riders is injured they still have Gresini's and LCR's Hondas and Tech3's Yamahas to deal with.
Very hard to get to a podium...
