Today I notice there are no race reports for Moto3 and Moto2, which has made me look back and notice there were no qualifying reports for those classes either
Having noticed this, I then had a quick look in the new "Race Centre Live", in which I was able to find snippets about the races - though, because most recent news comes first, it's in reverse chronological order - you'll scroll to the result before you scroll to what happened at the start. There's also the issue of having to wade through info about other series, which this weekend isn't so bad, but on weekends with more events taking place at the same time, will make it rather awkward and frustrating to find what you are looking for regardless of which series it is you are looking for info about.
With qualifying and race reports for Moto2 and Moto3 as recently as the previous event, it seems that the introduction of "Race Centre Live" has led to the demise of the Moto2 and Moto3 reports and most of the coverage of qualifying for those two series as well. IMO this is a definite backwards step. I'm also confused about the lack of (any!) post-qualifying news stories for MotoGP, as there were a few post-Friday practice stories (though two of the three were pretty much required...).
It's also not clear to me if it will be possible to read each weekend's Race Centre Live text in the future - will each weekend's Race Centre Live text be available via a link on the website (like F1 live coverage is)? I assume so, as it seems Race Centre Live will require more work than 'traditional' coverage and so it would be a huge waste if the weekend's work disappeared as it was replaced by the next weekend's coverage.
Had the coverage of MotoGP and its associated series been reduced from the start of the season, I would have been a little disappointed but I could see logic in it and understand it. When it happens part way during a season it confuses me and disappoints me more.
I don't want to be negative, but I see this change in coverage as a step backwards, or at best sideways, not an improvement.
