Too bad and this is a sad news for the sport..

But the good news is Alvaro Bautista gonna get the best '110% focused' support. I think he can talk much next season.

Hope Suzuki never have a thinking to quit after next season ends. Come out strong in 2012 on the 1000cc engine..!! The race fan from entire world love to see u kick ass again..

Why have there been no stories on Schwantz' offer to Suzuki?
I've been a bit tough on poor little Alvaro! I'm gonna eat a bit of crow and say that he put on a good show in the last few races since Suzuki realised what a waste of good oxygen Craparossi was! Still can't believe that bint could buy a ride with Pramac next year. Haven't heard anything lately but criticism about him from current and ex-riders including world champions, and rightly so!
Oh the bike wasn't feeling right, so I thought I'd better pull in! What a *******!

Sad indeed. I am old enough to have cheered for Barry Sheene and only one Suze at the back of the grid doesn't feel right. Maybe it's a bit like people used to cheer for the Norton Manx in the 60's. Gone forever.

In 2011 a one rider team with no sponsorship.

What will they do in 2012?

Would it be better value marketing wise to trundle round at the back in 2012 or to officially withdraw and concentrate on ensuring that the best privateer entries used 1000cc Suzuki based motors rather than BMW based ones?

I think and hope that Suzuki are abandoning the clearly useless 800cc GSVR, running a token effort in 2011 with as little cost as possible, with the idea that they will come back properly with a full works, two bike team for the 1000cc era in 2012.

They need some new tech guys though. Suzuki is around 13 times the size of Ducati - there is really no excuse!
