People continue to excuse the exception to the newcomer rule made for Marquez because it would have been difficult for a team like LCR to have to drop its Castrol sponsorship for a season. Well there was another alternative which, strangely, nobody even mentioned - that was for Marquez to give up his Repsol sponsorship for a year. But of course nobody dreamed of demanding that the 'chosen one' should have to make any kind of concession to the rules on his primrose strewn path to the top. To paraphrase Orwell, "The creatures outside looked from Ferrari to Honda, and from Honda to Ferrari and from Ferrari to Honda again, but already it was impossible to say which was which."
