When Danilo Petrucci's father was asked if he liked being in the box with his son during races, his reply was.... "no... my son is a man and has a job to do."
I agree with Petrux's dad.
I've worked for MotoAmerica as the mainstream media public relations executive for 2015 and 2016 seasons. I could go wherever I wanted pretty much. I had plenty of friends that were racers and my job was to stay out of their fucking way. Unless I was asked to help I never stepped foot into a pit. Or if I was there on business trying to line up an interview or something.
How many riders daddy's do you see in the pits at every race since 2012?
Maybe some more daddies should hang in their kid's garage? It doesn't seem like it's stunted MM's growth or anything - 8 world championships in 9 years isn't too bad
