The point penalty system has been discarded in MotoGP
Material prohibition in Moto3 and Moto2
The ban on the use of titanium has been extended to all parts of the frame, handlebars, forks, and wheel spindles. For wheel spindles, light alloys are also prohibited.
Safety in the pit lane
The announcement of the new rules also specified that the maximum number of people in the pit lane during the Q1 and Q2 sessions would be limited to four. After the changes, that number was expanded to six provided that safety guidelines are followed including the use of crash helmets, which is now compulsory.
In flag-to-flag races, the limit on people in the pit lane is kept to four as laid out in this season’s rules.
The point penalty system has been discarded as the FIM believes it has better methods to administer sanctions. In addition, the rules make official that no appeals may be lodged for the sanctions if the appeals stewards confirm the track stewards’ decision on the matter.
