The Italian champ said he would like to see a ban or at least a limit on the electronics allowed on race bikes, as they potentially reduce the influence of the riders on the outcome of a race. He said Aussie Casey Stoner, who took his Ducati to victory in the MotoGP world title in 2007, was the first of a 'new generation' of riders who would completely trust a traction control system to do its job. "For old generation riders like me, Marco Melandri and Loris Capirossi we have a lot of problems to understand. You have to be brave to use the systems. "It is difficult sometimes to have confidence in a system because that system is not human. "As an old generation rider, when the engineers come to you and say you can open the throttle full when you're knee is on the ground at 150ks in the middle of the corner, it is easy to say this from the pits. "It is different on the bike and that is the main problem for the old generation guys. Casey believes in the system and we don't," added Rossi.
