nah the guy needs to step up if he can ,and i doubt if he can,he won bsb title with an advanced electronics package that cost more than other teams bikes,and that flattered him big time,as for people making excuses for him,pathetic,never heard rossi or simmo complaining their height stopped them going fast and winning races,hes got talent ok but maybe hes not got enough at wsbk level,2 years on the trickest bike in wsbk and no wins, is a very poor performance,and riding a suzuki aint going to make that any better,he needs to step up or back to bsb

just watch what laverty does on the aprilia,he will show the camier fans how it should have been ridden,it dont do leon any favours when people post feeble excuses for him, ie .too tall,not getting a fast bike etc ,fever or whatever.

Its IMPOSSIBLE to judge Leon on this years performance as he has suffered badly through illness. If you want to believe that not to be true then you are wrong. Hes had glandular fever which takes all your strength.

Just wait for 2012, a fully fit Leon to show the world that us brits own the series. Go Leon

in 2009 it was just wait til 2010 to see what leon does in wsbk,then in 2010 it was just wait until 2011 to see what leon does in 2011, now it is wait to 2012 to see what leon does (yawn yawn),the fever never slowed down the partys ? meanwhile laverty comes in as a rookie and shows him up big time, yeah yeah yeah,get in the real world camshaft

Not sure why so many posts have large numbers of disagrees. This is a good fit all round. Cresent is a 1st class outfit, Suzuki pumping more money in (hopefully) and a decent rider pi**ed off at having to play 2nd fiddle to a prima donna on a pocket bike. On paper at least looks like a very very good combo. And if they can get Hopper on the other bike...

As has already been mentioned, Camiers' physical size on the tiny 'Priller didnt do him any favours.

Plus an Italian team, running an Italian factory bike with a(n eventual) Italian World Champ on board was always going to be challenging.

Last time he rode an IL4 was in 2007, so might take a little time getting used to it.

Personally I'd rather see Hopper go back to GPs and the 2nd seat to be taken by Loris Baz. Hes been looking for a permenant ride as far as Im aware and only lost his BSB place due to lack of funds - Unregistered

He didn't do didly squat on a best on the grid. The Crescent Zook was awesome in Silverstone coz hopper pulled a rabbit out of his ass. I am kinda glad that the good ape seat is vacated for someone who can do something with it. Go Laverdie!

Loris Baz - great though he is - is definitely not ready for WSB - look at his terrible starts - if you can't place well in BSB, then it just isn't going to happen in WSB. What a tragedy that Baz didn't go to WSS in 2011 rather than waste a year with Rob Mac in BSB - I remember posting a year ago that WSS should have been hois path. Hopefully he goes to WSS next year with a good team.

Good luck Leon in 2012 - having met Leon I can confirm that he is a sponsors dream. I will be very interested to see who gets the other seat - will it be Hill or Hopper - presumably it's all waiting on Suzukis decision re their MotoGP project. Maybe Bautista will take the vacant Simoncelli (RIP) seat?

Everyone should have a look at Camier's race results before that make a comment.

Leon pretty much was nowhere in the first race, then made amends in the second race. That is all. A lack of consistency or ability to set the bike up for the first race.
