i find it the better solution (rather than not trying at all)
Nah seriously I think its just too much, they would need to have bikes with the old engine and bikes with new engines (the chassis are different). Hayden is having enough trouble being competitive only worrying about 1 bike.
Kazuhiko Yamano, Repsol Honda team manager, said: “We have decided not to use the pneumatic-valve-spring engine for the Catalan Grand Prix.
"If we were to use the engine this weekend, we would have to do comparison tests between the pneumatic-valve-spring engine and the standard engine, as well as finding the best machine set-up and choosing the correct tyres for the race.
"Also, Dani and Nicky have to achieve fast lap times to obtain the best possible grid position, so they need to concentrate on this job. It would be better to test the pneumatic-valve-spring engine during the post-race tests on Monday and Tuesday.
