I can't believe race control decided to penalize Bautista. Simoncelli caused more havoc in his days. Poor Bautista doesn't have a reputation of torpedoing other riders.

Why so harsh to some and bland to others?

I've been saying since last season he's a no good crasher. He was on a great bike in the suzuki and spent most of the season crashing trying to stay with Rossi on the Ducati and people praised him when it he was clearly underpeforming.

This season, he is on a FACTORY honda in a satellite team, and is underpeforming yet again. Waste of a ride.

It looked like a very amateur mistake. Didn't he see everyone else was braking? We don't even see mistakes like that in Moto3 or Moto2.

"He doesn't have a reputation of torpedoing other riders" - wasn't he the one who took out three other riders at Valencia next year?

If you mean LAST year ( unless you can predict Valencia NEXT year ) he was rammed by Dovi and had nowhere to go. Blame him for that and you are a total dipshxxx
