Saw it on today's motogp.com's news. This news isn't finalized but I think I figured why Puig dropped Hiroshi Aoyama, which is something a Japanese factory will try not to do unless of sponsorship, from the 250 team when Telefonica pulled its sponsorship from MotoGP altogether. They brought in Sebastian Porto, a Repsol rider, to the new Repsol Honda 250 team and will choose another Repsol rider, maybe of Spanish Heritage. Furthermore, I saw Puig in one of Dani Pedrosa testing photos in the Repsol camp. Alberto Puig certainly made Honda and Repsol really close friends. I wonder if he will become the replacement for Jerry Burgess that Honda lost, when Valentino moved to the Yamaha camp, and become Dani's chief while still keeping his 250 camp as a way for Honda to find young talent.
