Yes, I think Repsol DO have some influence with Honda, and that Honda have due consideration for their Title Sponsor, & what Repsol expectations are for their investment in HRC's Factory Team (which must be expensive). This would hardly be unusual, and a sponsor investing the most money, can reasonably expect that they will get better results than a satellite team with a 'lesser' sponsor. And you'd expect Honda to understand and appreciate they have an obligation to try to match Repsols expectations - that'd be a pretty standard business understanding. And lets not forget the reality - to these guys, this IS business, not sport.
The only query is over just how this is all managed.
