Darth Puig Returns!

Big shakeup at HRC / Repsol.

Supo, Nakamoto are gone. Vanquished!

Alberto Puig now team manager at HRC.

Alzamora has apparently retained his position. The inevitable bitch fight between these two ought to be epic.

I really thought MM was going to be unbeatable in the foreseeable future, until this. Honda may have really screwed the puig (pooch) by getting rid if the incumbents and replacing them with Puig. DP might win a championship yet.

Thought Supo went on his own accord as opposed to Honda "getting rid", so a replacement was needed anyway. Maybe not the right appointment but we'll soon see.

A little harsh if anyone was sacked after 4 out of 5 championships.

DP was much faster when Puig was his mentor. His performance dropped immediately thereafter.

I have come to respect MM, but will have to support others for the wins if Puig is the HRC team manager.
(Edit actually saw Iggy with James Williamson, Steve McKay and I believe Mike Watt on bass, in Sydney 4 years ago, something I never expected to see).

Puig is Littlepingar.
He's sent off to manage an obscure fiefdom and somehow ends up ruling the kingdom
