Yes i know bumps, but saves all that shite of being overtaken in a pitlane, that aint racing.

Yes in the turbo era it was bad news, and many people ran out of fuel. there should be a set limit of fuel to stop this happening.

Maybe this will put the fire out.

Having just for my Fireblade (also equipped with fuel injection), the acronym is acually PGM FI (i not 1), and obviously stands for Programmed Fuel Injection. There is no reference to Formula 1.

As for F1 technology, what about the poncy bit of black plastic that sits underneath the rear bumper of the hot Renault Clios. Don't know if it actually makes any difference but Renault seem to think it's important and was lifted straight of the F1 car.
