@ fastfisheye Agree we may not be seeing Bautista's true capability, and he might well be better than his results suggest. Just like ANY of the satellite guys, AB isn't getting the same crack of the whip that the 4 'aliens' do. Even with his 'factory' bike he's got to set-up his Showa stuff on his own, which makes his job a lot harder. AB might be a lot more competitive if he had the same suspension (plus all the mountains of data available to all the Ohlins runners) - we just can't know whether his boingy bits are as good or not at any given circuit - the odds are that he is at a disadvantage to Bradl equipment & data / set-up-wise.
