Any way you look at it, this is good for Espargaro and his team and bad for the prototypes and their teams - Embarrassing for them really.

Good for MotoGP? Not sure.

give this guy a good bike maybe bautistas?

randy is an amazing experienced moto gp rider and Aleix keeps out performing him on the same bike, so this tells me he is the real deal

Randy is indeed fast, but only in bursts. Over a full race whatever the bike he has never shown the sort of consistent pace to be a regular podium sitter.

That's not to say he couldn't develop that pace and a couple of seasons on a slow bike could well be the way to achieve that. Trying to keep up on a slower bike does tend to improve your riding, just so long as you don't get disillusioned. The problem being that when you've had your chance once it's harder to get another.

Espargaro OTOH is an exciting prospect since he's an unknown quantity on a full fat MotoGP bike. I think he stands more chance of an MSMA ride that Randy.
