People forget that in 2007 Suzuki were running Bridgestone whilst Honda & Yamaha were running Michelin- and in 07 Bridgestone were the tyre to have. I think Bautista is a great rider and it isn't fair to compare the 2011 season with 2007 when CV and JH were riding. Few other people could improve on what he's doing right now. The mystery for me is why the Suzuki can't generate the heat? The heat comes from the tyre working, so are the swingarm and chassis too flexible around the swing arm? Is the tyre carcass not compressing enough? Who knows? Nobody, it seems...
