So what you are all saying is a team that screwed private teams up by underselling its title sponsor, who never really put any effort in, cry cause their engines don't last and get a special rule, never put more than 2 bikes in since 1987 and then ran away when then going got tough, should automatically take the place of a team that has invested during the tough times and gained momentum during those times?
24 teams is the limit to allow a good distribution of finance.
This is business and Ezpeleta is protecting those smaller teams who are taking the risk at these times. If Suzuki want to join they can do like any other business does (like F1) merge with or buy an existing team for its valuble grid slot. FFS they don't even know what category they are coming in at and just like Suzuki will want special rules to suit them.
Remember unde the Suzuki rules, Ducati would now be allowed 9 engines.

SUZUKI ! Why would you bother with a second rate outfit like motogp or modified road engines or whatever the racing class is. bring back two strokes and make them 1000cc. I want to watch them not ride them! !

you are right rsmick, it is a business, but the grid slots are not valuable just because the owner of the series says they are. i want to see the best racing moto gp can offer, and suzuki will put on a better show than any of the crt machines, the owner of the business must realise this and amend the stupid owning grid slots idea in favour of one which allows competitors to come in without having to sign up and pay for a 4/5 year contract to supply bikes. that is what is driving away teams ( kawasaki, suzuki, aprillia, bmw ) and allowing these budget crt teams to compete with what are basicly superbikes
i think sponsers would be drawn to a series with more mainstream manufactureres

I thought it was the end of 2011 Suzuki stopped racing, since last year was Bautista's first year on the Honda and he was on Suzuki before.

Well with some one like him in charge it may be a viable team. Lets face it Gary Taylor handed a championship winning team over to Lord Denning of Bournmouth, which then slipped down the grid and out of the back door of the championship!
