The entire 2007 MotoGP line-up gathered at Losail International Circuit today for a briefing session, in which some of the new regulations brought in for this season were explained in an open forum.

The Race Direction team headed by Paul Butler and also featuring Franco Uncini, Claude Danis and Javier Alonso gathered together with riders as a number of subjects were raised. Amongst them the most prominent was the introduction of a designated time for a practice start from the line, in place only at the end of the first free practice session.

Points were also made about the showing of penalty boards and the confirmation of qualifying positions when a special session is not possible (a la last year's race in Malaysia).

Following on from the briefing, the riders headed to the track for their second official photo.
