Chris Vermeulen and Loris Capirossi are being tipped to form next year's Suzuki MotoGP line-up, according to paddock rumour at Laguna Seca.

With John Hopkins having already announcing that he is leaving the Rizla-backed team for Kawasaki next season, and current team-mate Vermeulen set to annouce that he is staying put for another year, Capirossi is being linked to the second seat.

That would mean the Italian leaving Ducati, where he has been largely out-classed by rampant points leader Casey Stoner in 2007.

More to follow when we get it....
