Scapegoat NOT NEVER

If Paul Denning had been wise enough and up to the job ,like most other team bosses instead of being avery  weak and easily person led then not only would they have been more successfull but who knows  it might have persuaded Suzuki to stay.

Or at least he should have seen it coming and forewarned his ' beloved crew ' well before the axe fell.

I've said it before and say it again that weak and poor management always ensures bussiness failure.

 

AMEN

Scapegoat

I remember Suppo and Tardozzi turning scapegoat into slaughtered GOAT. I guess Paul Denning is feeling liberated enough to do likewise. Suzuki were always such a stuffy outfit. Still are.

Hopkins

How John Hopkins must rue turning down those wildcard rides with Honda earlier in the year due to misplaced loyalty to Suzuki. Who knows what it could have led to had he accepted them?

Your not wrong there, in fact I reckon he can thank his lucky stars he didn't join Suzuki . He's better off anywhere but that bunch of w,,,,,s I reckon that IF they do return in 2014 they will have a hard job employing any worthwhile riders given their previous form

Good Bike

Suzuki was better than Ducati this year. Suzuki is a good and a winning bike. They just had average riders. If you put the 4 Aliens, they will be winning in no time. Give Valentino or Stoner that bike, and it will win races ASAP. Sad to see them go. And then there were 3 left. Ducati better sort out itself out. They have Valentino. No excuses next year.

I have my doubts that they will return in 2014 and I believe they have only stated that to deflect criticism & minimise the fallout from their badly handled departure from MotoGP.
