Dovi drifted across on Bautista, just like JLo did to Rossi in Japan, and hit his front wheel. If Dovizioso didn't square it off into Alvaro he was never going around that corner.

@Dario: What? Who's demonizing Dovi? Not sure what you can read into "They don't move in slow motion" other than "They don't move in slow motion". I didn't say anything about Dovi, did I? Simply pointing out that it's easy to claim afterwards how this or that coulda-woulda-shoulda once we've seen a gazillion replays. But these are milliseconds we're talking about that they have to react in and yes, even though they are used to that speed, it doesn't mean they always can do something about it to avoid a crash. It was an unlucky situation, but a simple first corner incident, it happens. No rider deserves any bashing about it.

Bautista, what a plonker!

Bautista's games started at the beginning of the warm up lap when he rode like he was on a scooter with riders doing well to avoid crashing into his bike. I was thinking, what is Bautista doing, he's not going to generate enough heat in the tyres for the start of the race.

Bautista the plonker simply lost control under braking into the first corner. Bautista took out NOT 1 rider, NOT 2 riders but THREE riders!

Worst of all Bautusta was not man enough put his hand up for his mistake and to take it on the chin (like a man would). Bautista the devious (plonker) then tried to blame another rider (Dovi) for the incident who was way ahead of Bautista (the devious liar and plonker) for his crash.

What can you say about this guy?

Dovi was going in to the turn to fast and couldn't keep his line. Bautista obviously thought that he was going to turn like everyone else but he didn't. Bam, Bautista smashed into Dovi ... Not really anyones fault but Dovi might have been a bit to fired up making sure he wasn't behind Dani.

It was a bad thing for the race especially with the ending that we had with Stoner not being able to keep the pace in the rain tha last few laps.

Racing is racing, sometimes people bump in to each other, I wouldn't want to have it any other way :D
