Why does nobody want to employ Max Biaggi?

Maybe not the type of question you had in mind FD sorry about that. :lol)

But as someone new to this stuff it does puzzle me.I understand he can be a bit akward but looking at his CV....

I guess you are saying that it's a power thing then...

Lots of power gives the need for TC....

Sounds sensible...

Do they have engine management software which is read from the pits like in F1....


no, no data tranmission during laps/race is allowed. things can only be changed by the rider during a lap or by the techies once the bike has pitted.
there is no communication between rider and garage except via pitboard so if (for eg) the bikes engine mapping was changed during a lap, the only way the rider would find out was when the bike suddenly tried to spit him off....thats why no telemetry and data flow allowed except when the bike is stationary in the pits....too dangerous otherwise.

is an impressive CV but that doesnt tell the story of max and how much of a difficult customer he was in moto gp....
he now has another ride in WSB for the Sterilgarda Ducati squad which will have some factory support. so that should mean he will be on a bike that is as good as the factory dukes of bayliss & co.

max made a habit whilst in Moto gp of finding a bridge and burning it.....
the yamaha M1 he said would never win anything.....ooooops!
then he said the sito pons honda was not given enough support when they were doing better than the repsol boys...
and when he finally got a repsol honda to ride, he was nowhere and blamed the techies for trying to sabotage his championship!

and if you piss off honda in moto gp, you lose the chance to ride for about half the teams on the grid. so his rep was tarnished and all the other teams were signed up already or wouldnt touch him. hence the season lay-off and switch to WSB which IMO is the best place for him. he seems to have found his "home" there...

Does MotoGP or any bike racing come under the FIA?

no, fortunately the bikes are governed by the F.I.M. and because you havent heard of them, that means that they are doing a very good job and not interfering like some other megalomaniacs we know.....
