Which is fine by me. I don't care about the drama. I want to see a good race.
Well, if one doesn't exclude the other, it does add a bit of flavour. But yeah, those things are not a substitute for good racing. Rossi's popularity among people who didn't use to watch racing I think is in that he offered (-s?) good racing, with a laugh as a side-order.
