It wasn't about getting dovi's line it was about the slipstream. With the headwind on the main straight the honda was punching a hole in the air for him and making a huge difference. Its common knowledge that the suzuki doesn't have the power that the honda/yamaha/ducati have. Lots of riders were getting annoyed that they were being followed just not dovi on that lap

Those criticising Bautista don't seem to understand that the idea in qualifying is to get as far up the grid as possible. Kudos to him for getting a much better position than probable race pace would allow.
