"The CRTs aren’t a choice, they are a necessity.”
THE inclusion of CRT specification bikes has divided opinion in the paddock but for 2012 the lower-class machines have helped in bolstering grid numbers, something Valentino Rossi acknowledges.
Speaking at the Wrooom press conference yesterday, Rossi said: “It’ll be an important season to understand the potential of these bikes and I hope that the gap won’t be that great and that lap times will get shorter as the season go on.
"In a perfect world we’d have 24 MotoGP bikes on the grid, but unfortunately without the CRTs we’d only be 12 and this wouldn’t be possible for a World Championship.
"The CRTs aren’t a choice, they are a necessity.” concluded Rossi.
