MotoGP » Denning optimistic over Suzuki’s return to MotoGP


“They said the bike is beautifully put together. It's a prototype race bike [and] not a prototype of the race bike. It really looks like the finished article, very neat, really tidy, and nice to work on” – Paul Denning.

No more mistakes Suzuki, build your own motogp factory team a la Yamaha or Honda based in Japan.

Denning and the Rizla team did a tremendous job with Bautista the last 2 years of the GSV-R, to me the most hard working crew around the paddock. At the end of 2011, the bike was better than the Desmo and almost as fast as the M1.

But the Rizla team was also a good scapegoat for you when the bike was having poor results. (kinda, "Look it's not the bike it's the team that is managed by a non factory crew !").

Now grow a pair Hamamatsu, and live by the "factory rules". It's time to show what you're really made of.

I wish every article with the word "MotoGP" in wouldn't descend into stoner this rossi that.
stoners gone so get over it and rossi is with Yamaha
so not in a position to ride a Suzuki so there really is no need for there names to even come up

I wish every article with the word Suzuki in it didn't descend into short memories culminating in motogp fantasy racing.

1)It's 2002 pal, not 2001.
2) And Suzuki has been managed in the same way since 2002, its factory effort has always been run out of the UK by Garry Taylor firstly, then Paul Denning. Not directly from Japan.

And yeah I was watching moto gp 12 years ago, still how is that relevant to Suzuki being competitive in 2014 ?
But I guess stuff like that are carved in stone, Yamaha never ever got their act together since their poor show in 200... Oh wait...

The question should be directed to you.

where were you in the year 2002... ?

In 3 years time Suzuki and Honda will be on top in WSB when the 3 Motogp rejects will be made put their actual bikes out to race no their Motogp failures.
Thats of course if anybody is still watching WSB by then.

Glad to see Suzuki doing tests on their bike ahead of re-entering the series next season hopefully they're bike will be competitive as catching Honda and Yamaha is a tall task just ask Ducati. That said, it's nice to hear and hopefully see another factory in the series it would be nice to see Kawi and Aprilia return as well.
