Pol represents 'the new Marquez' to Yamaha - young, fast and media savvy. Honda have a Bright Young Thing, so Yamaha must have one and he is the anointed one. They are also looking to the future as Rossi is likely to retire at the end of 2014 and now is a good time to consider replacements especially as any sponsorship brought in by VR will likely disappear. Sensible business planning. Dorna will be cock-a-hoop about this too. 2 young Spanish rivals battling it out for wins etc etc. Wait a couple of years and the same thing will happen again when Pedrosa and Lorenzo start fading. All Pol has to do is compete with and occasionally beat Marc. A very tall order.
