Suzuki poised to officially confirm MotoGP withdrawal

Suzuki is expected to officially confirm it will withdraw from the MotoGP world championship before the end of this week. The Japanese factory was set a deadline by Dorna boss Carmelo Ezpeleta to commit to the new 1000cc MotoGP class by last Friday (November 11), as was first reported by MCN. There was no public confirmation from Suzuki that it would continue...

Shame, they seemed to be getting solid results and performances with the Gsvr.

I wonder where DePuniet will end up, i think he deserves a motogp ride. He had a shite year this time around but he impressed a lot on the satellite Honda. It'd be nice to see him on a proper bike instead of the CRT's. He deserves another chance after being plagued with injury. Then again, i can always see why people might think he's been a disappointment.

He who hesitates is F****D

Until they change their management then GOOD RIDANCE TO BAD RUBISH.


Just watch now how their sales will fall due to lack of respect and their total hash of management.

It was a given.

They would withdraw from the championship after all the silence regarding their future.

Tell me they're getting a massive fine!

They've had HOW many safety nets slung for them and engine-rule-bending to try to keep them competative and interested and they're STILL pulling out.

Good luck to Denning and the crew going elsewhere, but bejaysus to Suzuki upper management!

They had the WSBK title in the palm of their hands with Haslam and threw it away with lack of support!

God help Camier and Hopper in the coming season!

another 2less bikes that may have made up decent numbers,the crt's will be in their own race of backmarkers for stoner and co to rip up, moto gp will fall fast if ducati dont pull out a decent bike next season, world supers door is wide open for suzuki now they need to put the gsxr back on the map so to say. a shame as they have had some decnet results in the past, kenny jr days,hopper. bautista made the right choice moving when he did.

needs another category in Motogp, that is for factories to be allowed to supply engines for satellite teams to build their own chassis' around. This would be a less expensive way of Suzuki staying in Motogp. Could see Honda, Yamaha and Ducati following suit as the financial crisis hits deeper as it inevitabley will. And if it goes the way I think it will then specialist engines running a control ACU alongside CRT machines will be the only outlet for all the factories. The money just isn't there anymore, fucking bankers have lent it all to morons who can't pay it back.

It feels the sport is being rapidly pulled towards a financial black hole with little chance of recovery. The glory days of GP's are well and truly over, this despite the obvious talent on display. It's a crying shame..

Even though this had been mooted for a long time its still a shame, I bet Alvaro is glad he didnt hang around any longer else it may have been him out of a ride next season. Shame for Randy too, I think he would have nailed that 800 to try and mix it up with the rest of the real prototypes. 3 years is a long time in racing terms, if they are planning to come back in 2014 I think they are waiting for the paddock to go all CRT and they may come back as an engine supplier. Dark days for the sport really, only 2 factory Japanese teams now and 1 European.... and in reality a paddock of what will be continued Honda domination carrying over from this year... I wonder whether the MSMA and Dorna are now starting to wish they had stuck with the old 990 formula.... ???

TBH, whilst I always watch the MotoGP race my real interest lies in the Moto2 class - competitive Brits and exciting racing - you can always rely on Iannone to do something interesting!

Having said that, the last race was pretty good and one of the best for a while.
