As expected, the bike is capable of running with the hondas and yamahas.

However its pretty obvious when the race comes around he will either drop through the field like a stone or drop off the bike.

Still, everybody will praise his 4th place qualifying and talk about how he was unlucky forgetting he followed somebody around to get his laptime like a dog.

I do not like it when riders in the top class of motor cycle racing have to follow other riders to get a good lap time. If you cannot figure it out by yourself, you will never be a top rider.
He not only followed Dovi he also followed Dani, both of them should be upset with him.

Wow so If I understand correctly from the heat Alvaro's taking while he's doing this very rarely, I suppose guys like Barbera, Capirossi or Abraham should be banned from motogp ? Because they're following faster riders every frigging race week-ends ?

If Dovizioso on a Honda Repsol can't be faster than a following Suzuki, it's his own problem. I won't cry for a Respol rider, no sir ! In truth, a lot of guys wouldn't mind to be followed if they were riding the fastest bike out there.

So keep talking nonsense, it's entertaining, at least.
