Does it matter if the riders are not from that country? I've watched GP's for years without any British riders on the grid & when there was one, it's not like he made any difference anyway!
They'll be no Britsh riders in the top class again this season, I think I'll be watching regardless!

i agree with that...

being a Malaysian myself, i still watch the races despite there is no rider with the same nationality as me for a long time. of course, who wouldn't be proud when someone from their country competing in motogp? but that's not necessarily the case for true fans...

as for motogp community itself, it somewhat a must to have Malaysian GP... the riders love the Malaysian weather (especially when it hot, of course!), and since its inclusion it has become a permanent testing fixture for teams, starting way back from the days of Shah Alam Circuit.

Dorna makes a natural choice by retaining Malaysia... but the point of "having Malaysian rider" is simply way off the mark

I have no real thoughts on Malaysia extending their GP contract one way or the other.
I'm just so bored now there is no racing going on I'll read anything.
Why is the off season so ******* long for MotoGP?

The more the merrier! More countries with representatives would help Dorna/MotoGP/Grid size etc. Go for it Malaysia. This may help smaller countries (like the Dutch) by bringing even more attention to the sport. I'm sure there are some businesses from smaller countries that operate internationally that may want to advertise to a larger audience. I'm eating some damn good noodles :)
