There needs to be greater representation from other nationalities in MotoGP, but first things first: more manufacturers are needed that are NOT CRT teams( please come back Suzuki )

More like other countries need to get there act together like Spain has but its unlikely to happen.
Just because you diversify the riders nationalities does not mean the results will change. Nobody moaned about the Italians doing it on a regular basis in Motogp or WSB.

Lorenzo and Pedrosa just happen to be amazing talents and Spanish.

Well if you invest money into junior programs you will get results, I dont believe the nationality is a problem. The best deserve to be there, would hate to see some bull**** affirmative action program be implemented.

Another part of this is that both Pedrosa & Jorge are on much better bikes then there teammates,Alex Espargro hinted at this in the interveiw posted last week on Crash..Both of there bikes are alot better then anything else on the Grid be it Yamaha or Honda.
Bautista is riding well and it was a good decision to sign him too another year.

So how many spanish riders do we have in MotoGP for 2013, CRT included?
Pedrosa, Bautista, Lorenzo, Barbera, Hernandez, Espargaro... have I forgot someone?
And four race in Spain..?
Come on Carmelo - lets rename MotoGP to Spanish Open or something...

Oops, forgot Marquez - so thats what? Seven spanish riders out of ...eighteen?
Why call it WORLD Championship..
It wouldnt bother me because GP racing today (MotoGP that is, Moto2 can be really entertaining)is so boring so I practically dont care.
But now when Dorna has bought WSBK I fear that Mr Ezpelata turn my beloved WSBK into a spanish fiesta as well.
Ive nothing against Spain or spanish riders, but when almost half the grid is from one nation... come on!
