Given his performance over the last couple of seasons I don't know how Fabrizio managed to snag what could be such a competative machine. Look at how the Suzuki's are doing in BSB & Batta's Alstare team are easily capable of getting the same performance out of the bike...If the rider is of a standard to get it out.

Fabrizio might be unsure of his ride for next year. He could be overdoing things a bit to put himself in the shop window because Alstare haven't confirmed any plans for next year. His recent crashes could be attributed to attempts to impress his present employers and other potential suitors. Something doesn't seem quite right in his head right now. I still feel that the Gixxer is more than capable of finishing in the top six places in the hands of a very talented and focused rider.Its a pity that R & D assistance from Suzuki is non-existent because the GSX-R has a superb motor and is amongst the best handling machines on the grid. I think Suzuki is placing all their eggs in one basket & will launch a full factory assault on the title when their new bike breaks cover in 2013. It looks like Batta will soldier on with the present setup in 2012.

Just saw an interview with Francis Batta.He says that he wont keep Fab for next season and he will be looking for a rider who is able to keep bike on two wheels.They will have 1 bike in supers and 1 in supersports.

You're a funny man Mr Borat.

It seems sad that there is no works Suzuki team especially as it clearly has the potential to be a really good bike and with a new one just about to be launched (aledgedly!).

With Suzuki looking like they are pulling out of MotoGp as well who would buy a GSXR now?

Are Suzuki circling the drain?

Fabrizio has been an embarassment this year. So many moans and excuses. THe bike is capable of podiums every week. Never understood why Batta signed him in the first place, if he spent more time riding and less time changing his nickname and looking at the camera in the pits he might do better. Nothing more than an average WSS rider like Scassa.
