Dont worrie Bautista.. You can do a good race!! But do me a favor just wachout for your breacking points and for what you are doing!! You know sometimes you only waste races, take a loocke at Bradle, is roockie man you go let a roockie beat you?? and dont come with excuse of 1 year on an honda is just rubish.. One rider that worcks for so many time with Suzuki must know better then any roockie how a Motogp bike worck..

I like Bautista he is a nice guy but seems his is always close but not close enough!
And yes he should be beating Bradl but he seems to always finish behind him.....

Hope laguna is a top race love this track
Oh yeah us here in Perth western Australia have to get up to watch the race at 5am!!!!

That's commitment! Love my motto gp!

According to some other site he wants another year with the Honda at Gresini to get better used to it and to show his potential... sorry but that's just laughable. He gets outperformed by a rookie this year (in the dry and rain!) who never was on any proper MotoGP bike. And he has just like Bradl semi-HRC factory support. Only difference is the Showa suspension but it's not a big deal as some people make it out to be. Even though the rest has Ohlins but EVERYONE uses different ones (it's not like Ohlins just have one model) with different adjustments and settings so this is not an excuse and he admitted it in the interview. (motorsport-magazin. com/motogp/news-148130-bautistas-schwieriger-alleingang-ein-zweites-jahr-gresini-waere-hilfreich.html)

He was quite the underperformer and even John Hopkins and Paul Denning said that the last years bike had a better potential than Bautista showed. I somehow believe this will be his last year in the MotoGP class. He had plenty of time but under

Alvaro is a nice guy, but I think his performance in the top class has been far below expectations compared to some of the other riders whose heads are being called for every day on this site.

One really does have to wonder if the Suzuki was really that bad of a bike. Alvaro is on a Honda now and outside of a good qualifying, he really hasn't shown to be any more of a threat than he was on a Suzuki, IMHO.
