Well, at least he's got the whole weekend to practice on the long lap.

Will a KTM make a long lap?

No, requires fuel pump replacement and an Oberon clutch slave cylinder at least.

So the KTM MotoGP bike has built-in "long lap" penalties? :imaposer:

Strictly speaking Zarco's long lap was illegal, the rules state that neither the bike nor the rider should cross the lines.

I see Yamaha constructors has been penalized by 50 points.
I think it is because Yamaha changed the valves on their engines without permission.

This is all good and well but my question is :How does Dorna knows if there has been any unauthorized work done to any of the engines? Do they have to open up the engines from time to time to have them inspected or what?

Engines are sealed - they would have had to break the seal to crack the engine ... they were going to ask for permission then we heard they had changed their minds about needing to do so. This is not a mere oversight it is a blatant infringement/cheat and Dorna appear to have been complacent/complicit in following up on it. It is such BS and the riders should be docced points - they are part of the team and have certainly benefitted from this infringement. A dark day for MotoGP in my opinion. May need to go back to watching F1 where at least they apply the rules consistently. I bet 2SD had something to do with this  :o
