Posted by John - Unregistered (7 hours ago)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.

"a great bike in the suzuki" Ha ha that is a joke right ? It was a pile of dung and he was riding the wheels off it. Why do you think he ended up with a works bike and not a CRT !!!???

Hi There ! I have just read your comment regarding my post. No problem i will explain the point i was making. I remember some of the very nasty comments that were made regarding Sic and yes he did make me wince and look away sometimes . But he was not a nasty person just over enthusiastic sometimes. When he was killed a lot of people wished they hadn't said some of the things they said . I was just reminding people of those feelings . And i just feel its in bad taste to be saying some of the things likening him to Bautista even if it is true. I just feel its in bad taste to mention it . There is a lot of good been done by his family and friends in his memory because thats the sort o person he was . And about Bautista you will find that i have not made any remarks aimed at him for the reasons i have stated. To a lesser or greater degree all of those guys are my heros and it would always affect me if one of them get hurt no matter who it is . Enjoy the WSB later man .

big mistake from alvaro and deserve to be penalised but where's the equal judgement of race direction in every riders? how about last year rossi's rookie moved against stoner? the sad part was they didn't even bother to investigate what happened and come up with nothing. Obviously there's a double standard in this sport. I think it depends who u are and who u will take out.

Ridiculous. Simoncelli (RIP) made the same mistake last year. In fact, Bautista is a great rider IMO doing great things on that bike. Lets not slaughter him for one silly mistake.

Couldn't agree more with HaydenGo- they ought to give that boy bautista a big shiny medal for taking out Lorenzo. MOTO gp this season has been too much like an old boys club of Lorenzo/Stoner/Pedrosa patting each other on the back for race after boring race.
Pity Rossis' ducati is naff in the dry or we might have some excitement! This is racing not riding a procession of donkeys on a beach- although I'm sure Lorenzo would prefer that as long as he won all the time.
