@ Bunters

Fixi have a good rider, they just need to give Camier the bike. He already got that under-funded pig on the podium.

@ Jumbobet

You could make that argument if Guinters was ever on a top bike. Yes, in 2010 he was on the same bike as Haslam, but he was coming back from a horrible injury, but by mid-season he was giving some super performances and that's around the time Suzuki had halted development on the bike and pulled their support.

Guinters needs a TOP ride, he's not the youngest, but he has super talent. Give him a factory ride and he will be right up there.

I agree woth some guys here when they say that worck without enthusiasm is not the same, Guintoli allready had is time at Suzuki on the Alstare Team..! Maybe is Paul Denning that at the end wins with this maybe this kid from Australia can be a talente and can be a great number 2 him the Team and they can focus on Camier for 2013.. we will see i just whant to wach the Suzuki one strong Team for 2013 will be nice, they made good setps on the final races of 2012..

Sylvain seems like a genuine nice guy so i think it's unfair to judge him without hearing his side of the story.

If it's a case of he verbally agreed, then a better offer came along - which he took. Then i have to say fair play to him. The GSXR just can't compete with the latest superbikes, he'd be a fool to spend all year on it when he could be riding something a bit quicker.

Get over it paul.

Just read on Bikesportnews site that Biaggi and Checa are both out at Aragon testing for their existing teams, so who the hell knows what's happening?

There are any number of potential takers for the spare Fixi Suzuki seat: Josh Brookes is a good call, he must be getting frustrated at being runner-up in BSB! Josh Waters will need a few more years at world level before he could be competitive, the last few aussie imports seem to fare ok in WSS but not quite ready for the big stuff. Tommy Hill has history and a good relationship with PD and Big Jack, and is without a doubt at the peak of his powers. And lets not overlook how impressed they were with Peter Hickman at Donington! They've got that bike working for one tall rider, Hickman may be a surprise signing if he can get the sponsorship...

re: "I am extremely disappointed and surprised by Sylvain's lack of integrity and total lack of respect for the mutual commitments made, he said"

where you been denning, have you not heard the phrase...? "screw me over once, shame on you. screw me over TWICE, shame on ME"...?

news flash, it was YOU big team owners, YOU big entities that demonstrated a lack of integrity and a lack of respect for mutual commitments toward an individual FIRST. if there's a problem...? then it's one guys like yourself created. lash out at effenbert, not sylvain.

besides, stop thinking you're so high and mighty that every rider should feel "thankful" and "priviledge" to grovel at your feet for employment. he's the one with the proven riding TALENT, you're just a man with a team who receives f#%k all for support.

instead of pissing you might wanna respect the fact that some riders KNOW their worth and KNOW there are teams out here BETTER than yours. not everybody's a john hopkins.

It would seem Sylvain is no Joey Dunlop, because all the years Joey rode for the Big H he never had a contract, everything was sealed with a hand shake and being a man of his word he kept to it, as did Honda.

Still no official word on Max. I can't see him leaving Aprilia though, it's not like he needs the money and he's won all 6 of his titles with them.

He may be taking an ambassadorial/testing role like Troy Bayliss, who still tests for Ducati on occasion.
