Depending on whether your

Tough Break!!

I admire Alvaro as he's not been in a great place since he progressed to the top flight. Hope you bounce back again as you're a quality rider. If Hopper steps in hopefully Suzuki will give him the best bike they can, as it would be great to see another manufacturer at the front.

Bad luck.  I suppose we will have to wait to see Hopper in BSB now.  Perhaps  I had better start the rumours of who will replace Hopper in BSB.  Time for John Reynolds to come out of retirement???

It's a shit of a game sometimes.

Looking good and feeling confident. Bautista was a good chance to defy the machine he was on and show some of his smaller class speed that could at times take your breathe away. Speedy recovery young man.

Bad management

Can't understand the logic of Hopkins leaving Doha before practice ended, as he is Bautista's replacement. Not the best management decision!
