Technical Regulations

Machine Construction Materials Moto3 and Moto2 Classes

The ban on the use of titanium has been extended to include the entire chassis including the swinging-arm, suspension, handlebars, swinging arm spindles and wheel spindles. For wheel spindles the use of light alloys is also forbidden.

Effective Immediately

Pit Lane Safety

Sporting Regulations

It was previously announced that the number of team staff working on a MotoGP class machine during bike changes in flag to flag racing and during QP1 and QP2 is limited to four, each of whom must wear a crash helmet.

After representations from the teams it has been confirmed that during QP1 and QP2 a maximum of six team staff are permitted, each of whom must wear a crash helmet.

The maximum number in flag to flag bike changes remains unchanged at four.

Effective Immediately

Penalty points

Disciplinary Regulations

Taking into consideration that the FIM MotoGP Stewards have many penalties options, the penalty points were no longer necessary. The Grand Prix penalty points are now withdrawn from the list of penalties.

Appeal against a decision of the FIM MotoGP Stewards

It was clarified that no appeal may be lodged if the FIM Appeal Stewards confirm the previous (disciplinary) decision of the FIM MotoGP Stewards. In this case, the decision of the FIM Appeal Stewards is final.
