He took Lorenzo out in Assen in the first corner.

On topic: Alvaro is dangerous and he isn't able to win. Excuses as I have to get at the front asap, the race isn't won in the first lap ( generally speaking ) the race from yesterday was like a parade to be honest. Although Alvaro "Kamikaze" Bautista is from Spain his ambition to prove himself is wrong and out of order. Rossi was on the outside in La Caixa and Bautista running a higher pace in a slow corner euhm....His tactics don't work with the line he was riding it was to obvious he couldn't manage it without outbraking himself and run into someone else.

Yes Yes Yes Leave Me Alone

Clearly a lot of needle between VR and AB... realistically though Bautista is doing a good job on that bike and shouldn't really be anywhere near VR on paper...

Alvaro deseves a better ride than he has, then he might not have to push as much on inferior suspension.

Bautista said "the riders in front were holding me up! Lmao! JL, DP, Mm, Cc and VR were all pretty much wheel to wheel on the first lap. That was the most ridiculous excuse I've ever heard! Bautista did 1 session out of FP1,2,3,4 Q2 and warm up. He was as far down as 10th in FP 2 or 3 . He did 1 good qual lap so he convinced himself that he can run with the leaders and he was convinced that rossi and cal were "holding him up" this dude makes me nervous . Maybe rossi is right . Maybe Bautista feels like he needs to prove something. To me he makes bad decisions a little too often. Every rider makes them but this dude makes bad mistakes too often

Let me clarify that . I meant to say "Alvaro was faster than rossi In 1 session out of 6 and it was qualifying. The one session that does not really indicate who will be faster in race trim. Look at dovi, Bautista, bradl. They all qualify good but finish 20 seconds back in race trim. Same with Bautista. Rossi is the opposite. He finishes 6-8 sec back (on avg) so far this year but SUCKS at qualifying.

Bautista tried to overtake,that's what real racer do...Rossi took Stoner down in jerez 2011..Simoncelli took Pedrosa down on Le mans's. Racing...every rider demands respect.

Rossi and MotoGp needs a Villan to make theis sport interesting and there he is in all his Green an White / Go and Fun Honda!! It's good for the sport! I hate to say it, but people like to see others crash, (but not get hurt) at least physically! All these guys have pulled stunts like this sometime in their careers, what is the difference now?

My thought is that Dorna should have " Red Flagged the Race" Gave all the teams a half hour to get the bikes ready, for those who either crashed out or had to stop due to mechanical problems, reversed the grid and gave a five lap sprint to the finish. Now that would be some racing!! Thant would be fun!

Dont know when his contract expires but fairly sure when it does, so will his career in this class.

Iv'e mentioned before, that now, everyone wants to ride in the premier class and team bosses can turn riders over as they wish.

Alvaro has ran his course and I personally would be surprised if he is offered another contract at this level.

Bautista needs to calm himself down as he thinks he can get to the front at the first corner!!!!! Imagine the carry on if he had again taken Valentino out??? It was a miracle that Valentino was able to run a bit wide as Bautista's bike missed him by inches! A penalty needs to be given now as once is an accident, twice is pre-meditated!! No wonder Bautista sat holding he head - still with his helmet on - in his garage afterwards!!!
