don't be stupid Suzuki !!! !this year all contracts well most are up, so dig deep and save yourself alot of headaches and repairs!even a sykes or ya know i would look at Maverick Vinales, Rabat ,tuff call ,,,go with a young great hotshot or a skilled veteran ,both have their pros and cons! take Redding would be cool !! better shut up now or i will end up with a 20 plus list !! any thoughts??

I'd like to see Suzuki run Scott Redding with Hayden or RdP (on the veteran side) or Aleix Espargro and Vinales, another young gun/veteran combo... What's the dream team for you? I think one moto2 front runner or GP rookie this year plus a veteran rider, preferably not RdP.
Hey it's a long shot but how about Hopper wins the BsB this year and gets his old seat back?!

Stop it with the Hopper suggestions already, it is silly. So much young talent out there in moto2 and current motoGP rookies that one should not need to look elsewhere, not even Superbikes. Suzuki please get a good sponsor and a couple of hungry young riders. If RdP is able to place that bike within a couple of seconds of the pace I am sure that a top ranked rider could do a better job, it seems to be heading in the right direction for Suzuki if you ask me.

Hopper, did you see his gut? He's got a pity ride in BSB right now, if he makes good, great, but he's definitely not the right guy to be in MotoGP.

I think Showa/Nissin/Honda would want to retain Bautista because he's doing great work for them.

Hayden doesn't seem to have the raw pace anymore, Redding is already faster than him. I'm afraid Hayden's days are limited in MotoGP although maybe he'll get a test.

IMO if Suzuki is fielding two riders. Depending on how E.Laverty does on it in 6 weeks, he should be one of the riders. I'm betting RdP has in his contract at least 1 year as a rider, so that would be on OK pair, but Suzuki should also seek young blood as well, Tito Rabat perhaps.
