Sylvain Guintoli took over from the injured Alvaro Bautista at Rizla Suzuki during Monday's test session at Brno in the Czech Republic (pictured).

Guintoli, who raced in MotoGP for Tech 3 Yamaha and then Pramac Ducati in 2007 and 2008 respectively, switched to BSB with Suzuki last season and currently rides for the Japanese manufacturer in WSBK.

Bautista heavily bruised a vertebra during a big Saturday practice crash at Brno, which forced him to miss qualifying.

The Spaniard returned for the race but crashed out at the very last turn, moments after overtaking fellow rookie Marco Simoncelli for eleventh.
