I wish these guys luck, especially Loris. Suzuki's average over the past 9 years is 35 points and the standard deviation is 18 for the same period. They are within 1/2 a standard deviation, I would say that is right inline with their past performance. Now days with 23 points your are at the bottom of the ladder because their are fewer teams - too bad for Suzuki that Kawasaki has left Motogp.
In other words the riders are not to be blamed here, the problem is Suzuki.

I think Loris still has the ability to race in this league, especially compared to the recent 250cc grads. but he needs a half-way decent bike to prove it. I seem to remember his performance in recent years as track dependent i.e., he goes very well some places (Bruno) and not good others (Leguna). There just aren't enough rides available. Is the talk of a lower cost class to be run within the MotoGP field going anywhere? That would provide a chance to re-establish his credentials. Can't see him going to Mooto2 like Elias. Whether Tony's successful run there will lead to another MotoGP seat is questionable.

Suzuki is in for the development for the 1K season...that is where the hard-work is invested right now...2012 or bump it up to 2011 for 1K cc...at least the riders are fresh off the contract switch and have a chance to develop the bigger engines...yeaaahhh!!! Personally, I root for the Repsol for 1Kcc bikes...but that's just me. :blush:

Someone at Suzuki need to do their homework properly and find a good rider from Moto2. Suzuki needs to lock on to them early and not let them get away like Ben Spies did. Come on Suzuki find a Champ and not these yester year pretenders. Look hard and bring in everyone to try out for next year.

@Dray

Why would any real prospect give Suzuki a second look?
First they have to exhibit the will to spend money to develop a race worthy machine. Otherwise it will be retreads and back markers. Any rider would have to be desperate to sign with them.
