If Randy de Puniet is testing the bike then there's a fair chance that the Aspar team are involved in getting Suzuki back onto the grid if it comes off...no doubt there will be some 'dispensation' or deal done to overcome any issues, especially where there is a heavy Spanish interest.
But until the championship attains some stability in terms of technical rules I can't see why they'd bother, the constant state of flux has got to be off-putting to any prospective entrant/sponsor.

As much as I hate Ezpeleta's determination on focking WSBK without kissing it first I have to agree on making sure the manufacturers are under control in Motogp.

Suzuki must understand being there is a privilege not a right. They totally disappointed when they were in with their outdated lazy effort. People developed this huge hate against Ducati because of Rossi's failure but Suzuki screwed as much careers as Ducati did.

If Suzuki isn't coming back to give a 100% in development I'd rather them stay the hell out. I suffered badly seeing some of my favorite riders get seriously hurt pushing their dog.

Why would Suzuki need to "source" a grid spot from an existing team? Surely the addition to the grid of another factory team should be welcomed and should increase the grid numbers, and therefore the overall spectacle, and not be at the sacrifice of another team.

why bother... the amount of money (estimated 30 mil) that Suzuki would need to spend to be competitive, they could go back into wsbk with a full factory supported team and gain more exposure for their brand and kill it...

I couldn't agree more. How is there gonna be cost-cutting if they (Dorna) change rules every couple of years. The Mfg's must be screaming in the back rooms "Not another f&%# change again".

Instead of wasting energy changing their minds maybe they should focus on making the races more attractive to those that pay for it (the Spectator).

But then again, Ezpeleta and Dorna are a Spanish concern and look at the financial mess that Spain is in right now. GO FIGURE!!!!!

MotoGP is no longer a fair competition with Honda and Yamaha having everything in their own favour. I can still remember when they abolished 500cc because Honda wanted 800-4stk. Honda spends nearly one billion dollar every season. How do you expect other teams to compete?? Ducati couldn't even produce a single chassis in almost two years where Pedrosa tested more that twelve chassis in a single season.???? It is not a fair competition anymore, CRT is the way to go.
