He is not a hit-man paid to take out the factory Yamahas.

He just doesn't have bal*s to torpedo honda rider because it could be disaster for his future in honda.

He will not hesitate to take out other rider except honda rider.

Hopefully Fausto Gresini realizes Bautista's poor judgement riding is making his very respectable team look bad and drop him, there are plenty of other talented riders out there. I'm sure the Honda people aren't pleased, and we all saw the look on Lin Jarvis-no way AB is ever getting a Yamaha ride!

Bautista's main problem is he judges the braking point by where other riders brake. He does not know how much grip *he* has, so he relies on riders around him to break first, then he tries to 'outbreak' them.

In close racing that always ends in tears. Karel Abraham is same, except slower.

I'm actually an Alvaro fan, and I'm on his side!

Firstly, the comment is clearly a barbed one aimed at Rossi... he just wants to make Rossi come off worse.

But actually, AB has a point, he was really fast in practice (faster than Rossi and Marquez) and could well have been on the podium on Sunday.

He was slightly unlucky to go down, but he would probably have beaten Vale over race distance and he knew that.
