No one is suggesting a team from the Crash.net comments board would take on Pesek and come out on top. If we say he's rubbish, we're clearly not talking about relative to the average guy on street. But this is MotoGP, so we're comparing him to the best in the world.
And as fans of the sport, we are qualified to give an opinion.
I think it is clear to most people that Lukas Pesek did not earn a MotoGP ride through results. He was a decent 125cc rider (about 6 years ago at that) but he was barely average on a 250 (he had decent kit as well in 2009) and has never been anywhere on a 4-stroke.
So no, he hasn't earned his ride. Which means he's paid for it.
And usually you have to accept that is part of the sport. But in my opinion this qualifies for special comment, because Pesek has been particularly nowhere in recent years. He's quite an extreme rent-a-ride case.
