With many teams and riders still furious at the decision of race directors to ban John Hopkins from the Malaysian Grand Prix following the first turn pile-up at Motegi, his Suzuki team are rumoured to be planning a light-hearted revenge for the American's 'comeback' at Phillip Island this weekend.

Hopkins was so angry with the decision that he flew to Australia without stopping to watch Sunday's race, but the 20-year-old could well crack a smile if he finds some new livery on his #21 race machine...

In a similar style to many lorries traversing the motorways of Europe, it is rumoured that Suzuki will put stickers asking 'How's my driving?' and 'Please ring this number with your comments' on the Anglo-American's GSV-R in a direct dig at those who condemned him as dangerous.

The Williams Formula One team ran a similar message on their rear wing a few years ago when, having faced similar accusations following a number of collisions, they ran a 'Keep your distance!' warning (pictured - click to enlarge) on Ralf Schumacher and Juan-Pablo Montoya's cars.
