@Sillius Soddus and BringBackTheSpark
You guys are muppets and go back to reading about Rossi's bowel movements.

Bautista seems like he is really loving the direction of where the bike is going, with a bit of luck they may be able to get in front of Yamaha on occasions before the end of the year. This would give Suzuki real confidence for the 1000cc development.

Does any one know what the reason is behind commentators statements like 'the Suzuki doesn't work the tyres enough and it takes time for the tyres to come to the Suzuki'. Is it ad indication of the Chassis stiffness or the lack there of, or just commentator BullSh*t?

This guy could be afable, but is not faster than John Hopkins, who got on the suzuki that haven't ride in a long time and was faster than bautista.
I think bautista is very lucky that Hopkins broke 2 fingers in the free practice 2 and couldn't ride that race, because he can kick his ass any day.

Anyway, he's not Rossi, not Stoner, not Pedrosa, not chulenzo... just bautista, not faster than Hopkins but the guy help a lot to develop the bike.

I wonder if their new found pace has anything to do with them not having engine limitations.

Give all the other manufactueres unlimited engines Drona, or are you going to make MGP the laughing stock of the racing world by handicapping the best, and this is called racing...javascript:insertTextCursor('comment',%20':rolleyes:') - Unregistered

Suzuki is doing a good job and Bautista is showing himself as a great rider.

Not to miss the oportunity to rub salt on Ducati's wounds, I would say that if it was Rossi at Suzuki getting the same results as Bautista, he would be getting accolades everywhere from the miracle recovery done at Suzuki...

Everything is relative and Motogp as any other sport and the what if don't mean a thing, but just imagine Bautista at Dovi's bike and what Pedrosa would be thinking?

Suzuki has unlimited engines. A concession given to Suzuki to remain in MGP.

A unfair advantage if you ask me, this isn't racing, it's handicap racing...

Dude, stop spreading false information already!


If you want to play the wise-ass you need to check the facts first. Suzuki only has 6 engines this year like every other manufacturer and looking at the updated engine lists - at reliable sources like motomatters for example - you'll see that they're not doing bad at all either, their engine durability can take it up with the best of the them this year.

So stop claiming that Bautista and Suzuki have an unfair advantage this year and give the boy and his team some credit for the work they're doing.
