Despite all effort from Capi and Bauti Suzi is a two words descripted: no risk, no risk, no risk. Just safetly go to another race and safetly past it no matter the result (read as 'no result') Just to be in MotoGP is enough.

I for one hold thumbs that the wheel of fortune turns 180 this weekend.Something like all the DNF'er's finish on the podium and close to the front.
The Championship race needs a serious hiccup,but no injuries,breakdowns please.

You blokes saying that suzuki sucks and should stop and have a good hard look at yourselves. Sure they're not having a good run, but if everyone stopped racing when they weren't being competitive the championship would be krap. Not too long ago the sport was dominated by honda and everyone else was scratching their heads, should yamaha and suzuki have given up then? Nah, they fought hard and suzuki even jagged a championship at one stage and came close too with Beattie. Now it's Yamaha's time to shine, should the others pack up? Even Ducati struggled before the Stoner phenomenon. It's swings and roundabouts in motorsport, suzuki is struggling but they'll be back in it one day.

Paddles:
yes, but the struggling momentum started in 2001-2002 and now it's almost middle of 2010...Suzuki or Kawasaki aren't much smaller then Yamaha or Honda and even small company like Ducati or Aprilia can build winner bikes...

Paddles, that's the best statement I've read on this never ending crucifixion of Suzuki.
They may be struggling a little, but they're still there, unlike a certain "Green Machine" who weren't quite cutting it.
As to the statement that, "not even Rossi could win on a Suzuki", If you had a Rossi, Lorenzo, or a Stoner on the Suzuki, I'd gaurantee they'd put it on the podium!

Sure Suzuki works hard and watch this:
a)Suzuki withdrown from SSP last year
b)Francis Batta considering end his relation with Suzuki as the factory supports the Alstare WSBK team on the very low and weak level...they provides 2 bikes and 1 additional Yoshimura Suzuki in WSBK which has plenty of problems just to start in this category
strong bike means nothing without support and money...
c)king class MotoGP: 2 struggling bikes already from 2002 season with all time same problems. Factory spend all money and resources on that project but it looks like resurrect already dead corps...
d)Capirossi consider to quit Suzuki after 2011

so no Suzi in Supersport, probably no factory team in SBK or just one Yoshimura Suzuki bike will remain and Rizla Suzuki which has all time the most chattering bikes on the GP grid...no good. Focusing on current Haslam SBK momentum and future 1000cc clas MotoGP project would be the most logical move.
