Be interesting to see how he goes... Hopefully the new rules will work more in Suzuki's favour

Denning has previously said the engine limit will force Aprilia et al to de-tune to more towards Suzuki's level in order to preserve the engine, so Suzuki could be in decent shape if the chassis is as good as Camier says it is.

A Laverty and Lowes line-up is more enticing a Suzuki partnership than I would have expected a month ago, that's for sure.

I just hope Camier can get another decent ride in WSBK - he doesn't deserve to go back to BSB just yet...

I also feel for Camier. He's showed some decent speed and with some better luck I still think he could be right up there. He'll be gutted if the political shift with Dorna's meddling means the Suzuki is competitive and he's not on it.

I can fully understand Suzuki wanting Laverty. But Camier understands the bike and is experienced on it as well as showing great pace, race pace and tyre management ability. Can't help feeling LC should still be in that team too.

At last a signed contract. Hopefully watertight and you can push on to MotoGP if the package is set up correctly. Big challenge ahead but more than capable of getting results - maybe not at PI (don't be surprised if he does tho) but it won't take too long. Here's for a good season Norge, see you at PI.

if the playing field for next year has been leveled, as some people say, then we could be in for a great season next year. Hopefully Suzuki, Honda will be more competitive and we could have 7 or 8 potential winners in each race. At the end of the day who cares if the bikes are slightly slower than they have been, it's the racing that matters.

Personally I think this was a bad decision by Laverty to turn down the Ducati ride, because Ducati are very serious in turning out results. Not to mention Laverty worked two years with Gigi and I'm sure there would have been slightly better chemistry within Laverty's side of the garage if he was at Ducati.
