Repsol wants Spanish riders. It is as simple as that. The real loser in this is Jorge. He is the only top 4 rider without a contract for next year. This also eliminates the only seat at a top tier team that wasn't already assigned besides his seat at Yamaha. He is stuck and is probably going to have to take a pay cut.
