At first I was feeling as did Quart' - this is totally stupid.
Now I feel it's totally stupid, but I'm often wrong, so give it a try.
But I am attracted to the idea that Sprint Races will dilute the point of the meeting - The Grand Prix.
We build up to a race, then a race happens.
Not, we're gonna waste your emotion with a vapor-points race that can damage the Real Race.
So I see two, no, three paths -
1. Everyone toes the line, and they all race like trained sheep.
2. Some riders/teams race, and some riders/teams have a 'labor action' and use Sprint Time as FP4, coming in off the track to make changes to find a set-up for the GrandPrix.
which may lead to
3. World Superbike was correct all along, and now MotoGP is going to have two valuable, points-paying, meaningful races in a weekend, the first one on Saturday with only half the setup time of the traditional Sunday race.
This I like. I feel there's more drama for the fans. More variability in outcomes. If Dorna wants to make the Saturday race the same distance as FP4 to keep parts' lifespans the same, that's even better for the teams that don't have long-run pace.
I think MotoGP needs to commit to this or get out now.
Supports splitting everywhere.
