MotoGP » Capirossi: My dream is to race 1,000cc again


Already the most experienced rider in grand prix history but with all the enthusiasm of a newcomer, Loris Capirossi tells Crash.net Radio that his goal for 2010 is to regain the rostrum - and beyond that, to still be on the grid when 1,000cc returns in 2012...

On the 990's in 2006 Capi was on fire, he COULD have been champ that year had it not been for that terrible crash at catalunya. I tell you now, if Loris is still around when the 1000's come Id tell the 4 aliens to watch out :)

Not if he's still on a Suzuki and they build another v4.

BUILD A 1000cc INLINE 4 SUZUKI!!!!!

Why would he be more competitive on the 1000 than the 800? He fails to be competitive now because he is on a Suzuki, not because of engine size.

Everyone seems to presume that the new 1000's will ride like the power sliding bikes of last decade. The game has moved on. What if they require a riding style more similar to the current 800's?

Only Moto1 bikes will be 1000cc (basically modified superbikes), 800cc factory prototypes will continue so far. It would be too expensive to change everything all over again.

Just go buy a regular 1000cc Ole Cappi. You time has come and gone. There is too much young talent to have anyone sign you when it comes around, not to mention the clock ticking and you getting older by the minute.

Au Revior, Auf Wiedersehen, Adios.
