Rizla Suzuki team manager Paul Denning has told British Eurosport that Suzuki will make an announcement about its 2011 MotoGP plans during it's forthcoming home Japanese round at Motegi.

Rumours suggest that Suzuki may cut back to a one-rider team next season, which would be for Alvaro Bautista, who is in the first year of a two-year contract.

Denning denied that Suzuki could withdraw from MotoGP altogether at the end of the season and the choice seems to be whether to run one or two riders next year.

Loris Capirossi is all but certain to leave, probably for a ride with Pramac Ducati. Denning confirmed that Randy de Puniet is a possible target to join Bautista if the two-rider format continues.
