Motegi MotoGP: Alvaro Bautista still in dark over Suzuki future

Alvaro Bautista is hoping to get a clearer indication of Suzuki’s future MotoGP strategy during this weekend’s Japanese Grand Prix at the Twin Ring Motegi. The Spaniard confirmed earlier today in Japan that he has no clear information whether Suzuki will remain in the premier class in 2012, with the Japanese factory’s future the subject of constant speculation. If Suzuki does decide...

Thing is, would tech 3 only be a years contract or would he be eventually replacing Cal as Bradley is in tech 3 moto gp in 2013 ain't he. I'd maybe stay put another year. And see what happens. Easy for me to say sat at home though. Dilemma hey

Dilema ?

Starting next year on the 800 almost certainly spells a whole season wasted in the premier class, but what else can he do. Apart from Tech 3 which still isn't certain there are no other decent rides in the class. I am sure someone will have a stonking CRT bike fairly quickly but there is no way to tell what team will pull it off from the present perspective.

Alvaro is too talentend a rider to be getting the pathetic support he has been recieving from Suzuki. It'd be a crime to stick him on an 800 next year or even worse to see the team fold from under him. He's been outstanding on the bike this year and should be supported accordingly. Pramac could be a good fit next year assuming ducati can get the GP12 sorted but I'm not sure Bautista would want to take that sort of gamble after taking a similar one with Suzuki. Either way he's a Hard working and hard racing rider we need on the grid and on a competitive machine.

time to move

Bautista should do everything he can to get tech 3 ride, god knows what will happen with suzuki, they cant seem to see when to get behind a project, the 800 is starting to come good this year. But just look what happened to Haslam in world supers, had a chance of the title and got nothing from suzuki all year, pretty pathetic really,Bautista would be better off on that yamaha, even on a year deal.

Yeah he has outperformed Hayden on the Ducati but he is still under contract with Ducati till next year. As for Bautista he sure deserves a better ride Tech 3 IMO is his best option quick before it gets taken. Another option could be LCR get shot of the mediocre Elias a team what does need lighting up after a horrible season.

Suzuki are messing the entire team around, not just Alvaro by holding out for so long with what their future plans are.
