Motegi MotoGP: Suzuki misses out on season best result

Suzuki’s home race in Japan ended in bitter disappointment after Alvaro Bautista threw away a golden chance to claim a career best MotoGP finish at the Twin Ring Motegi. The Spaniard was pushing in fourth position to keep a hard charging Andrea Dovizioso at bay when he lost the front-end of his factory GSV-R machine at the penultimate corner on lap...

Such a shame

gutted for Bautista. Really wanted to see him do well this race. Could somebody somwhere please sit up and take notice this boy is a racer and desrves to be on a decent machine. I know lots of people would like to see him on a Tech 3 bike but I don't think he'd ever make the factory Yamaha Squad. Pramac for a year then Haydens factory seat?

    I agree with you that Alvaro was very unlucky to crash & miss out on a podium finish.It was a golden oppertunity to get on the podium but it just was'nt to be.I think he should go to Tec 3 or Honda LCR but I don't think he will get the oppertunity,I think this has more to do with his nationality than his ability.Tec 3 seem to have to have a british rider.Im british but I would rather see a good spanish rider than a not so hot brit,but there's politics at play,money at stake etc,etc.

    As for Honda LCR,I think they're comited to Simo & Dovi.Dovi I can understand but Simo vs Alvaro ! I would pick Alvaro every time.Simo is a gamble,he may pay off or he may not,Alvaro on the other hand will be a lot more consistant but then Dovi is Mr consistant,the almost but not quite alien.Any way I think both Tec 3 & Honda have made they're choises.I think that they have over looked Alvaro & his performance in 250's & on the Suzuki in Moto GP.

give him a decent bike...

i like alavaro he is fast and hungry for podium, riding tech 3 will be good for him but i would like to see him riding ducati because if ducati wants a rider that can push their bike to the limit then they will see the real potential of the bike and he can give the right feedback to engineer. Herve the boss told the interview that he likes alvaro...
