I agree that airing your dirty washing in front of the media lacks dignity...
However, I can understand Dennings comments. He has already been to the press about the signing, and has used the usual cliche's of how happy he is, how the team will grow and blah blah blah... etc. To have to back track on that must be very difficult and embarrassing for the team. At the end of the day Sylvain did sign the contract, and like everywhere else in life, once you have signed on the dotted line, it is a commitment no matter what else comes along.
Also, Dennings position was made even more tricky by winter testing this week. If this statement hadn't been released there would have been huge pressure on the team answering the question of why Sylvain isn't there? His hand has been forced, and he has done the right thing issuing this before the test starts.
As for Sylvain, I don't blame him for jumping ship for the Aprillia ride, it's a no brainer. However it does damage his credibility... alot
