Aren't you fond of praising Rossi for his ability to pass in the pack around the first few corners.
What exactly has Rossi's skill, or anyone else's skill at passing people got to do with Bautista's growing list of first lap fuck ups?
Bautista had better drive from the previous corner and had got up the inside of him. Rossi closed in on him. I'm not blaming Rossi but it contradicts your argument that you shouldn't race on cold tyres in the first few laps.
What kind of warped world do you inhabit? Where did I say you shouldn't race on cold tyres? I said he should stop crashing and taking people out. Casey was the one that always complained about people "racing" in the first few laps. He was the one that wanted everyone to hold station 'till his tyres hit the right temp on his little dash readout. Never heard you complain about him saying that.
If places aren't important in those first few corners why didn't Rossi just give him room
He gave him plenty of room, places are important, Bautista fucked up on his own and has said so. The shot of him in the garage with his helmet still on, head in his hands says it all don't you think? Or are we going to get the Bulto spin on that too?
The first corner is where Lorenzo won his last two races ffs.
This, from you, the guy who jumps on anyone you perceive to have slighted or denigrated any riders achievements. It was nothing to do with the consistent fast lap times that Dani and Marc couldn't live with? Nah, get to the front first few corners, job done.
What a fucking hypocrite.
