Seriously- Why change the rule, oh wait....because he is the next Spanish hope. Case in point number 1 - Dani Pedrosa (silver spoon) Straight into Repsol from 250cc, a bit of success but 15 race wins in 6 or 7 years in Motogp on a factory bike is reasonable but not outstanding. Case in Point number 2 - Jorge Lorenzo has done and continues to take advantage of not having to work his way into a factory ride which he more than likely would have got anyway based on his sheer talent. Case in point number 3- Marc Marquez. Anybody who says Marquez will not get the facotry ride next year is kidding themsleves. If marquez wasn't in the Moto 2 category the rule would remain and non spanish guys like Luthi and Iannone would have to ride ther ****s off to get a satalite ride just like Bradl did. To keep this series transparent and non biased to other non spanish riders the rule must continue in force until there are no spanish riders coming through with exceptional talent that are allowed t
