I see what you're saying, but doesn't Repsol just manufacture motor oil? A specialty motor oil company hardly qualifies as "big oil" in the same way as Gauloises/Fortuna qualifies as "big tabacco".wescoas1 said:I would say that there are probably many worse things about Repsol than Altadis. Big tobacco may push cancer-causing products to well-aware consumers but big oil tends to motivate conflict to people that are often oblivious (*achem* Iraq). Not to mention most oil by-products are also cancer-causing in nature. Hmm, which is the worse of the two?
that might be a little tidbit of why he left honda. but he signed with yamaha because 1) to prove to the world he is the best...not the bike. 2) more moneyLok said:Great article, Rossi is a man of integrity. I always wondered why he signed with Yamaha/Fortuna/Gaulouises when he always said he hated tobacco, I guess this is the reason why. I can't wait to see next years Team Yamaha scheme.
