It is a sad state of affairs but those who keep criticising Dorna for introducing CRT bikes and searching for other ways of reducing costs should switch channels at the end of each race and watch the financial news. Aspar, predictably, have lost their Bankia sponsorship and Caixa should follow as it's taxpayers' money they're using to finance Marquez, not their own. In F1, Santander should not be wasting millions on sponsorship - if marked to market, they'd be seen to be insolvent. Santander UK are a wholly owned subsidiary, though the parent company would need permission to pillage UK savers accounts to stave off bankruptcy. They shouldn't get it, but you can never be sure when the regulators and governments who make the laws are in the banksters' pockets.
