The win in Phillip Island aside....Laverty and Lowes are about in the same positions as Cluzel and Camier on the Suzuki..... Not talking crap about Laverty, just that on the same package there is not much between the 2 of them.... IMHO Camier would have put that Suzuki on the top step last year barring his injuries. To me the main difference was the electronics engineer they brought on board with Laverty from Aprilia which brought the bike a little step forward prompting the win in PI.

Now that everyone else is in the swing of things, the Suzuki (although competitive) is slightly behind... But let us not forget though.. Camier also put that bike on the podium multiple times between end of 2012 and 2013.

Sorry all... I am still little bothered by Camier's dismissal from the team at a time when he was unable to find a new ride....which left him on the side lines. To me, Camier is a quality rider.

PS. I am American so no National sentiment here... Just objective reasoning.... I am more of a Sykes/Melandri fan although I rate all these guys highly...

I didn't like that Eugene was booted from Aprilia either but I guess this is the business now.

As Camier said the other week he's back to "ambulance chasing" for a ride. There will be someone hurting themselves (I sincerely hope not seriously) but a collar bone here, wrist or finger there and he will be on the top of the list of replacement riders and if it happens to be a good ride in a major championship it can give him the opportunity to show his talent. Remember it was a shoulder injury to Carl Fogarty that thrust a certain replacement rider called Troy Bayliss onto the world scene when he took over Carl's Ducati.
