What do you expect, out of the 4 bikes able to win on their own, 3 of them are riden by Spaniards...

It doesn't look any different in the other classes, and that's why the rest of the world and foreign sponsors don't care.

They asked Lorenzo during the post race interview about the Spanish dominance in MotoGP to which he answered that Spain until the recent crisis used to put a lot of money and dedication to the young talent and that they probably had talent lined up for then next 5 to ten years.
I couldn't agree more with Jorge, is not their fault that they are being supportted by their country or the national pride of their sponsors helps them get to where they are. This must be an example for other countries(Australia, Italy, UK, and USA) where there is an abundance of natural talents but get nowhere.
Oh and by the way, Congrats to Jorge on his 100th podium, wish you good health and equipment to reach 100 more.

If your the GOAT,
you WIN
You WIN more than anyone else
you beat your team mate
you then bet the field
you dont have excuses or moan all the time
you do this from the start of the season till seasons end

If you cant do any of the above then you are no GOAT
This is what I like about Lorenzo and I hope Rossi will return to do the same

No Riggas, we are plenty to be interested in JLo. It's just that there's nothing real wrong to say about him. He's one of the least controversial riders in the paddock. His threads can't really be derailed by the trolling attempt.

JLo keeps his mouth shut, has earned respect from his peers, give credit where its due and is a very successful rider.

What else...
