boring from people who send down good riders...
he is enough good for win, maybe some didnt read a interview where he explain that Aprilia told him he dont have the same bike, it was obvious...

with a good bike on his hands, he can do great things, Crescent and Yoshimura looks like finally the find a pace to go, everyone improve, lets give some credit before send them down, hope they still on that great line...Camier and Cluzel is a good pair...

" with a good bike on his hands, he can do great things "

Good comment but the current Suzuki isn't going to do the job for Camier any time soon. I just don't see Suzuki at the top end challenging for wins. Maybe the one-off or odd race due to conditions or attrition.

What Kawasaki should have done was sign Camier and not Baz but that's Kawasaki's fault. That would have been a very formidable pairing

maybe Kawasaki dont want to catch Camier from SuzukiĀ“s hands due to Guintoly-Aprilia/Suzuki drama

and yeah, shame Suzuki is not top now,
but the team are working hard

take note Kawasaki and Suzuki look like they have good relationships, or at least they dont feel bad between each other,

i still waiting a Pedercini official Kawasaki Renegade Ninja for Nori Haga...jeje

re: "and yeah, shame Suzuki is not top now,

until such time the factory starts working hard, their efforts are academic.

we needn't look any further than sykes and kawasaki to see my point about the importance of factory involvement. david beating goliath only happens in fairy tales, not on race tracks.

Perhaps you didn't write exactly what you mean but David does beat Goliath on race tracks quite often given their underdog status-

especially Cresent Suzuki historically (see BSB 2000-2005: full manufacturer superbikes including HRC vs tiny dealer backed Suzuki squad on a tenth of the budget yet won equal titles. It got Cresent the job of running Suzuki's MotoGP effort in the following years)

Also WSB= Alstare Suzuki in 2010 and James Toseland 2007, MotoGP= Toni Elias in 2006, Casey Stoner 2006-10.

It cannot be all the time due to the very nature of the inequities but to claim it never happens displays your lack of understanding or historical context.
