I fear it is a case of a better bike than most- though he still has to ride it, of course and possibly on a par with Randy De Puniet. If it was all equal, and known to be, more noise would be made in the paddock but it isn't that must say something!

Wrong choice by Suzuki to chase down this guy. He's already had a chance on a Pramac Duke a few years ago, and whilst I admit that it wasn't a good bike, he wasn't very impressive at all.

Suzuki should be chasing Crutchlow and Redding.

The current riders on Pramac Ducati's might not agree that it's such a great "chance."
If anything, the last few years have shown is that even a great rider can't impress consistently on an inferior bike( Stoner being the exception to the rule).
The fact that Espargaro is now the top CRT rider and pushing the satellite bikes and deceasing the gap to the factory riders and finishing consistently is pretty darn impressive.

Aleix is easily better than half the field and deserves to be on a factory bike, but Suzuki is just like Kawasaki, is just like wtfe. He needs to be on an Aprilia when they finally decide to up the ante and bring in non-CRT bits.

Agree with nealio! Yeah, Casey is really the exceptional one. Kind of missed seeing him around the paddock, really!

A CRT is a CRT. Not bias in any way or to say Aleix is an outstanding talent, but he's proven himself well & positive, so far this year. Don't know what the future will bring, but if he can keeps this consistency with gradual improvement along with his decent CRT results, I'm sure 2014 is a beautiful year for him! Why, his CRT might be fitted with a more powerful engine and the option to get into Suzuki's factory machine. The field then, will perhaps be more leveled for closer competition.

So, as of now, things looked little rosy! :)
