@Taz there are a number of things wrong with your rant. Sure Dorna abolished the rookie rule, but it has only been around for three seasons. It's not like it's some long standing tradition they've dropped to favour Marquez and Honda. It was a pretty stupid idea in the first place. It certainly didn't achieve it's stated aims. The idea that barring factory teams from signing rookies would give satellite teams a better chance makes no sense. Nobody wins in their rookie year, I certainly don't recall the last time it happened. So if a factory team signs a rookie that's one more experienced rider for the satellites. Secondly I recall the days when the 500s were effectively an American championship, nobody blamed the organizers then. Oh and it's not Dorna that makes the rules, it's the GPC and the last time I checked that included one representative each from Dorna, the FIM, MSMA and IRTA. So even the idea that Repsol have undue control is bogus since Repsol don't even sit on the GPC.
