'I think it's been good for the technicians to have some time in the workshop with everything they have learnt last year, so I'm hoping to start at a much higher level than we did in 2012' - Leon Camier

Shay max had factory support and a lot more budget, he was also nearer the fastest down the strait when he was on Suzuki, not the slowest. camier can run at the front with rest of them, but not sure if he can when he that ow down straig, he hasn't got Ducati grunt 2 get him out of corners.

Leon will hit the ground running this year and will surprise a lot of skeptics. Yoshimura & Crescent are now in their sophomore year and will be much better equipped to display a truer picture of their performance potential. The Gixxer showed great improvement and a decent turn of speed towards the end of last season. It has a sweet-handling chassis. By all accounts, the electronics have been refined and more power has been squeezed out of the motor which should see it cope much better with the factory boys. I predict that Camier and Cluzel will gain many top 6-10 finishes. I have a sneaking suspicion that Leon will climb the podium a couple of times too! Jules Cluzel is a hard charger and his attitude reminds me of his countryman, Loris Baz. Watch this space... Go Suzuki!

Leon seems to be able to run a good pace during races, especially on worn tyres, but he really needs to improve his starts and his qualifying.

In WSB you can't afford to make bad starts.
