Ride of the day has to go to Bautista!!! Great work Alviro. Perfect hit, How long have you been practicing that move.I guess it makes up for Rossi's hit on Stoner a while back. What goes around comes around

I think Bautista should get a beating to! Because that punishment does not get Lorenzo his points back and Bautista is just an "also-ran" so it does not hurt him! Also he still will make good points because overtaking the CRT-bikes is not a challenge.

If it wasn't a mechanical, that was the most ambitious first turn banzai I have seen recently. Sounds like the might give Jorge another motor in his queue.

@ Tooteez: Don't talk ****e! Remember what happened to Marquez when took out Wilairot during practice at Phillip Island last year ? Exactly he got put to the back of the grid. So no Marquez doesn't get away with the kind of stunt that Alvaro pulled today. Race Direction just doesn't see why Marquez should be punished for every single race incident, when it's obvious that his competitors are afraid of how good he is, and are using trying to use politics to go take pot shots at him and to try and unsettle him at every chance they get. Especially when the things Marquez does are done by others week in or week out, or in some cases far worse is done (see Cortese), yet barely anyone bats an eyelid about anyone but Marquez' indiscretions. Like they say u don't need to be a veterinarian to know a horses ass when you see one...
