Would love to see de Puniet on the Suzuki, with him and Bautista who is starting to get some good results on it, they could be a pretty good team next year.

Denning knows exactly what's happening next year.
Suzuki are giving him the 2010 bikes & spare parts, a batch of engines & barely enough budget to run as a single bike private team - like Hayate.

He is hoping to get enough budget from sponsors to run a second bike, but Suzuki aren't going to go for that because then they will have to continue manufacturing parts.

don't know if the designers are doing that stuff.....but engineers must be to have made zero improvement for the millions spent on this turd of a bike. Still don't know why they didn't just go back to the drawing boards and build a prototype GSXR. At least there would be a development curve from that which they've excelled at rather than poking about in the dark high from the product rolled in their sponsor's papers

Easy peasy for Suz to turn their fortunes 180.
1)Scrap the V and go back to transverse 4 a la GSXR
2)Base the team in Spain under Spanish management
3)Paint the thing Yellow/Red and Black
Last but not least,sign Marc Marquez alongside Bautista yesterday.
By 2012 they will be at the forefront.
Roll on the disagrees and hate speech !!!

Every since VW bought into Suzuki they have been hiking up their skirts as far as race funding and even new product (seen any new GSXR's lately?)development. The AMA Motocross/Supercross team being the only real exception until DeCoster jumped ship. So even that may be following suit.

The fact that the bike is so perpetually uncompetitive is the primary reason that the Sponsors are not flocking to paste their name on this thing. Denning is asleep at the wheel(letting Vermeulen go as the teams only 800cc MotoGP race winner?) is the second reason.

It's almost clear that 2011 will be a temporary year with lots of work over 1000cc prototypes and less progress with dying 800cc class. Bautista alone or with other rider (Puniet?) will 'pass' 2011 targeting 2012 season with a chance to bounce back with maybe strong Suzuki 1000cc construction. But yeah, 2011 is already 'to forget'.
