As a reply to the OP- imagine a race series where there was absolutely no personality shown by any competitors. The race broadcast would start as the green flag dropped, no interviews by DNF racers, no post race conference, no interviews away from the track.

Yeah, I know that this is supposed to be about RACING, but would it interest as many fans if the human side of the riders was missing. Sure some of it is (too much?) drama but then it gives us something to post about after the engines are switched off.

I am a fan of all those riders, but once VR hangs up his leathers- on-track but especially off-track entertainment will decrease. All the other current MotoGP riders have the personalities of mannequins compared to Rossi.
