After the abysmal time Loris spent on the suzuki, I am willing to bet that he will at least be able to finish a race next year.



Welcome home Loris, welcome home.

Bautista did better at finishing races than Loris did on the Suzuki.....and he is a rookie wth his first year on a 4 stroke.



The Suzuki was better with Hopkins and CV.....and went backwards once Capirossi took the development role.



Loris is done and that Ducati ride is a wasted seat for a better rider.

Hear Hear!



Loris got whooped on the duck last time he was riding one, isn't that part of the reason why he left because he wasn't getting results.



What's changed now that he will get results? The bike was good enough to win when he was there and he helped develop it.



I fully agree with FACTORY on this.



Cheers

What's happening with Suzuki next season, are they dropping to only one bike? (sorry if this question has already been answered previously, but I've been under a rock for the last couple of weeks! busy at work! )



I can't help but think the Suzuki will go backwards without Capi on it. As for Ducati well done Capi belongs on a Duc!

Short memories - Loris was strong on the 990 Duc and could have been a WC contender if Gibernau hadn't taken him out. I'm looking forward to seeing him back on a Ducati and even more to seeing him back on a 1000 with reduced electronics.

I can think of something... If you were not an alien would you rather ride Stoner's bike or Rossi's. Bikes setup by Rossi tend to be smooth and easy to ride, and we all know what people who know think of Stoner's riding and how easy it is to get on with his bike.

Suzuki stopped investing in development, that's the reason for the zero results -- the only investment they made since 2008 has been Loris Capirossi, i.e. a very modest investment. CV was still there with Capi and was performing worse than his older teammate. Capirossi may be ripe for retirement, but he is unlikely to be the reason for the failure of a MotoGP team...

I think that Capi is stoked about going back to Ducati since the bikes will be back at 1000cc's in another year. So it may not be the most progressive season with the 800's last year for Loris but you never know. The bikes have changed I am sure quite a bit since he had been on the Duc so he could get on one and feel right at home. But with Suzuki I don't think he was the reason they didn't do so well. I think they just don't care about GP a whole lot and to be honest I wouldn't doubt if they were given the chance to step out of motogp they would do it right away. Take a look how many bikes were imported to the US last year from Suzuki and there is your answer for a racing budget that doesn't do a whole lot other than to be visable to the public.

On the gpone site he talked about developing a new frame,but only Bautista is using it,Suzuki sais they can't afford giving it to him.

I guess he got tired of being the Suzuki racedepartment himself along with the guys in his team.Maybe Suzuki had planned to run a one-bike-team one year short of their contract already when they got Bautista for 2 years.

I'm glad for Loris that it is over anyway.

I think he is going to like the new 800bike he only rode it one year,as it is probarbly very much improved in a way that suits him too.

Except that it's still seems hard to get it turning sometimes,as i know he talked about in 07.Maybe Rossi on the factorybike can fix that then.

I think he will be around fifth,kind of like Edwards last year.

I bet he is happy to go to a bike that Rossi/Burgess with be will be heading. It will be easier to blame someone else if things don't work out well. I think you are right...he got tired of being the developer and having to take the heat for the lack of progress. Also Capirossi knew Suzuki did not have a budget close to the other teams going into it (and he kept on resigning with them!!!)...so i don't know why he thought he could go in a change the world on a Suzuki.



5th like Edwards??? I wonder if he will finish a 5th of the races in 2011!!
