If Hopper got another chance to restart his career, Vermi has to have one as well! I am sure he will be back, just the matter of time. Bayliss does not recommend someone as his own replacement just for nothing.

CV is having plenty of luck at the moment, he just needs some of it to be good and he'll be back battling with the leaders in no time.
You've got to admire the team for their patience too.

Must say I still rate Vermy's manager for getting him such a solid contract... most other riders would have been binned ages ago.

There's hanging on to a rider because he or she shows promise and then there's hanging onto a rider because you know the lawyers will drag through hell and back if you don't...

This guy did more on a Suzuki that Spies, Toseland, Edwards, Simoncelli etc have so far managed on far superior machinery. And Kawasaki having more than a single brain cell realise that an injury free CV is an asset.

I just cannot believe that a man from Australia does not accept the fact that he cannot ride a racebike any more.
(Basically the whole team should quit,this is a circus not a racing team.)
