here we go again,suzuki doing the same old preparing to fail as a long term suzuki fan as well as owner i am sick of suzukis lack of proper effort.
sure they are a small factory,but if you are going to do something do it RIGHT.
de puniet riding the bike will tell them virtually nothing.there is a certain australian playing about in cars at the moment that would be able to tell them far more than randy after about 5 laps.
come on suzuki,do it properly for once !

He's a good lad but I sincerely hope RdP isn't who they choose for the seat next year. He's good but he's being outclassed by Espagaro at every turn and quite honestly there are a myriad of more suitable candidates. Redding, both the Espagaros, Bradl, Crutchlow even Hayden

Lorenzo should give them a try. he wants to be viewed as one of the greats, but has only been on a top notch bike. he should give an underdog a try like Rossi to the m1 and Stoner to the duc. win on that and I'd be much more impressed.

i also think the suzuki situation is a good example of how much a racing presence affects bikes sales,particularly in europe.their sales have dropped off a cliff since they withdrew from moto gp,in turn giving them less money for investment.
sure its tough times for all the japanese manufactureres,
but suzuki really do need to up their game in every aspect of their operation,in todays climate the size of their operation should allow them to change a bit quicker than the larger companies,so lets hope they do it.
