MotoGP: An extra engine for everyone in 2022 if there are more than 19 Grand Prixs

Currently, the MotoGP regulations allow constructors in the MotoGP class to use a maximum of seven engines during the season (nine engines for constructors with concessions).

This regulation was established when the calendar had fewer than 20 races.

Since the 2022 calendar foresees 21 races, it has been decided to allow the use of an additional engine providing that  there are 19 races or more. The extra engine can only be used in the 19th or subsequent races.

The regulation has been updated as follows:

- With less than 21 races on the official calendar issued by the FIM prior to the start of the first race:

constructors will have a maximum of 7 engines (9 for manufacturers with concessions).

- With 21 or 22 races published on the calendar issued by the FIM prior to the start of the first race:

constructors will have a maximum engine allocation of 8 engines (10  for constructors with concessions).

The use of this 8th (or 10th) engine will only be allowed starting from the 19th race.
