Story is already getting ravenous replies on crash.net. Funny how a lot of posters on there are calling to boycott Repsol products when they clearly have no idea that Repsol is an oil/petroleum company.

They werent too amused when I told them they'd have to give up their car, heating, any plastic products (including what wraps their food and dicks)....

Repsol sponsor the HRC factory team, a couple of lower class teams, and I dont think they sponsor any of the races....they may give some money to the championship overall....so them pulling out would mostly harm MM and Dani from what i can see.....

Doesn't really sound like a great strategy to penalize they guy they think was hurt by the incident....by no longer sponsoring his team....

Does Repsol give more or other monies to the championship?

lol...people underestimate how much of their everyday products require petroleum in some form.

I'm pretty sure Repsol is running this angle for Honda so Honda can be seen as not getting involved. It's a backdoor thing.

I think it's about the long-term implications of a Repsol sponsorship pullout.

Now that they've put this in the arena, it could open the door to Honda going to Dorna and saying that if their sponsorship gets pulled because of what happened in Sepang, they may consider pulling out of MotoGP altogether.

The levers of pressure are starting to get pulled.

I would assume it's just a tactic from Honda to make sure Dorna doesn't give into any pressure to remove Rossi's penalty due to him threatening not to race at Valenica. It's all BS, but extremely childish on both sides. The Pope needs to get involved.

This of course was totally acceptable, despite actually being premeditated...
