Alvaro, bear this in mind, you idiot, Driving beyond your limits means you are going to crash, not that you are faster than the person in front of you. *****!!!!

If he does it again this weekend, and its his fault for driving beyond his ability, he HAS to get a caution, even if he doesn't take anyone out

Ill take some flak for saying this but Buatista is a great rider could be a front runner its just not going to happen on showa suspension and nissin brakes.
The only thing is that guys like Buatista havent got the right support behind them. Remember hes riding for a hundred grand a year not millions in a highly dangerous sport and needs to stand out where or whenever possible if he is to negotiate a more lucrative opportunity.

he has to, and get some decent results or there's a good chance we could see redding on that bike.
he has to score points or performance clause could be used against him.

by the way this is getting him good media coverage. negative but still getting in news.

@klx652 - I had the word m0r0n automatically edited, but you slipped an @sshole in. Well done sir

@V4Poweeeer - he is a great rider, but he's doing his image a lot of damage by driving beyond his / the bikes means.

Dear Bautista

Do not judge your braking point by where other riders brake. They can brake later into a corner if they have more feel.

Instead, pay attention to your own grip levels and brake accordingly. There is no shame in braking a bit early.

Finally -if you must crash- take a factory Honda rider out for once.

Regards
Everyone who watches motoGP.

They are all good riders, you dont need to treat Bautista like a baby, is grow enaught and he allready had one Factory Team with Potencial to do better when was Suzuki times, at least if he had crash less and learn more it could good for him, anyway they are all good but they are not like Marquez Lorenzo Pedrosa Etc,, they can t be all that GOOD... I dont understand why people complain so much about the potencial of showa suspension and nissin brakes, are they only good to qualify nice and make good practice sessons? then arrive the race and the brakes and suspensions dont laste one lap, and you think its material probleme.. Honda must be saying thank God the material is cheaper because if was expensive wth thw use that Bautista give to them it would be a waste of Money...

It takes ball of steel (read stupidity) to try and out brake potentially better suited bikes and supposedly more skilled late braking riders who are already going deep in to the corner. He should be commended for it.

Unfortunately the downside is inevitably you crash out a lot and occasional ruin the "show" for other riders/teams/fans.
