I just hope they can keep the pace and the improvements going through the year instead sliding backwards as the season progresses

Just for once it would be great to see a Suzuki finish the last race in the same position as they're preseason tests

I agree Monster. It would be great to see Suzi up there after such a long time in the wilderness. Loris put up some great battles in Sepang over the years. He's very good there, like Mugello. Rossi seems to 'own' both those circuits.
What the time sheets say with Loris and Suzuki at Sepang just don't count for much. I hope they can turn it around. Anyway, its early days.

Bautista's career took a nose dive the instant he signed with Suzuki. Name one rider in the four-stroke era whose career improved by riding for Suzuki. Everyone who left Suzuki went to an even worse team or out of the series altogether.

He will wish he was on an "evil" Ducati when lesser riders consistently finish ahead of him on a read bike.

Said it before and I'll say it again..
SUZUKI=WOFTAM (Waste Of F#$king Time And Money!)How can they persist with this $hitbox??? It amazes me in this day and age that a professional outfit like Suzuki can keep producing fantastic road bikes but don't have the know how to go MotoGP racing....THINK ABOUT SUZUKI!!! YOUR GETTING BEATEN BY THE SATELLITE TEAMS!!!

the problem with the gsvr is it was flawed from the very start, they tried to get a headstart on the other factories by fitting a 4stroke motor in their rgv chassis, and it failed miserably. then in true japenese factory fashion, rather than realsie they were wrong, they spend the rest of eternity trying to make it work rather than scrapping it and starting from scratch
