Suzuki needs new blood on the machine. The current riders have done all they can. Thanks to Capper for his hard work and I'd like to see him stay on with the team somehow. CV just isn't putting it together in a way that would see him on the podium.

That 'rookie rule' is probably the most ridiculous thing I've heard of in motorsports racing.

It is yet another example of dorna's inability to think through their rule changes/make consistent and enforceable rules. Suzuki now would seem have a disincentive to ever set up a satellite team when the aim of the rookie rule is reputedly to promote satellite teams.

Exerpt from Bautista article, "Like Bautista, Vermeulen is keen to remain on satellite equipment, and at the moment, there are appear to be very few factory seats open."

WTF? [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/huh.gif[/img] Is Kropotikin on drugs?

Rookie rule is one more indicator of how farcical Dorna's decisions and decision making process are.

Dorna need to have rule freeze for the next few years...

Prediction:

Jorge joins Repsol Honda
Pedrosa replaces Loris at Suzuki
Edwards to Fiat Yamaha
Simoncelli to Tec 3 or Gresini
Bautista to 3rd Suzuki or 5th Yamaha

I would be seriously surprised if Edwards moved back up.

I think Suzuki may want to entice Ben Spies back, it depends on how well Yamaha treat him and the size of the Suzuki carrot.
