MotoGP » Capirossi undergoes successful finger surgery

Rizla Suzuki MotoGP veteran Loris Capirossi has declared himself 'very pleased' with the surgery he has received to his injured little finger following his opening lap clash with Ducati rival Nicky Hayden at Misano last weekend - but remains non-committal as to when he will return to action

I read somewhere that Suzuki was not expected to have a replacement rider which would reduce the grid to 16. I would love to see Haslam on the bike. Spies did it and this is the first time for all the riders at the track, Come on Suzuki, get with it!

No chance Haslam would get permission for the one off ride so long as the World Superbike season is still active. He may have a big ask to win the championship but so long as you have the mathematical chance you'd be stupid to give it away with an 800cc go.

Give it to Mat Mladin. :P

I dont think there will be a huge difference if Capirex will return or not..

he wants to go to a different team anyway...and attempted to finish his contract with Suzuki, even if it means breaching the contract...

Capirex is tired of Suzuki and him not being on that bike will save Suzuki some dough..

I heard Toni Elias is Eyeing on Suzuki for his return on 800's next year..

Just glad you are ok Loris. If the same happened as did to Shoya it would have been the blackest day in GP history. Like you my deep thoughts go out to Shoya.

Just like they put the kills on the side of the jet fighters they should put the amount of bones the suzuki has broken on its side.

Hopper's should cover most of it.

Dear Capirossi,

I know the check is good and all but like Melandri says. You're wasting your time in this series and should try the better series before you retire.

i reckon loris has had a wonderful career and i am a great fan of his riding, but everything would have to point to calling it a day in the motogp rat race and handing the suzuki over to someone keen to go crazy on it like hoppers used to. surely supers must be calling him.
