Here is an update to MotoGP engines after Qualifying 2 at Motegi. Data taken from official Dorna Engine Lists.
Again, factory teams (Honda and Yamaha only) are limited to five engines for the season.
After Marc Marquez pulled off the track in FP3 on Saturday, you may have heard Livio Suppo from HRC say in response to Dylan Gray’s question about Marquez polling off track: “There was something wrong with the engine. The engine was working but with some strange thing… And because it was a new engine, Marc preferred to switch it off and come back to the garage to check.”
This turned out to be a non issue: Marquez and Pedrosa both started using their fifth engines in FP1 at Motegi. In spite of Marquez pulling off track in FP3, he used his new (fifth) engine in QP2. Pedrosa also used his fifth engine in QP2.
Bradl still has four engines in service with one withdrawn from allocation, and used engine #4 in QP2.
Bautista still has three engines in use with two withdrawn. He used engine #4 in QP1 and QP2.
Rossi still has five engines in service and used engine #3 in QP2.
Lorenzo has four engines running with one not yet in service. He used engine #4 in QP2.
Espargaro has four engines running with one not yet in service. He used engine #3 in QP2.
Smith has four engines running with one not yet in service. He used engine #3 in QP2.
Ducati is allowed 12 engines instead of five and rider use is as follows.
Dovizioso’s sixth engine, #8, was withdrawn from allocation for the Japanese GP, so he began with three engines currently in use, with and still has three unopened.
