My best wishes go to the team members made redundant. Remember, these guys are on contracts so no severance pay - even for Shenton who's been with the team as a pivotal player for 19 years. Also Suzuki/Denning left it so late in the season to tell these guys, that now they have little chance of finding new jobs within MotoGP as all the job juggling went on a few months back.

Shenton has had so many years as a top crew chief with the likes of Spencer, Ballington, Gardner, Schwantz. Me thinks they have sacked the wrong Race Engineer....

I would suggest Suzuki look at the top of the tree!
Paul Denning certainly hasnt done much to inspire Suzuki, oh well I guess he's the man who brings the money in.
Good luck to all the guys who have had to leave and I hope its a better 2011 for the guys left. I have had the pleasure to meet these guys and they certainly give it all and are a freindly bunch.
Surely the head of Suzuki must be wondering whats going on with this bike
