Suzuki request MotoGP testing return

Suzuki have re-ignited claims of a 2014 MotoGP return as they today requested permission to partake in selected MotoGP official tests in 2013. The Japanese team, who left the championship for financial reasons in 2011, have long insisted they would return eventually. They had orginially hinted at 2013 wildcard rides, but MotoGP boss Carmelo Ezpeleta has announced that instead they have requested...

And in which series do you anticipate Suzuki being able to 'fuck 'em all' with a V4 two stroke?

Busaboy. I think perhaps you need to revisit 2010. How the Honda started a tank slapping bitch for Dani and the refined regular race winner it ended up as. Pedrosa played his part in this.

As for Rossi and Yamaha. Well that's another ad nauseam subject. Furusawa brought out a brand new motorcycle 2004. Yes Rossi and Burgess fettled it a bit, but the thing bore little resemblance to previous Yamaha MotoGP machines. A combination of luck and cunning on Rossi's part to land his arse on that seat that year. A machine that in one iteration or another has been the best all round bike on the grid since 2004.

Dovi the developer

a baseless assumption Reverend.

Dovi had half a season more experience with the Ohlins than Pedrosa who chose not to change from Showa during the '09 season. So it took Dani precisely two races to erase that disadvantage.

HRC being who they are probably design chassis' more on data (on reflection I'd say all mfr's do) than rider input - although obviously this is a critical component.

Did one rider have more influence than the other during these years? Who knows. Does it matter? Not as much as results; and that me old white collar worker shows Dani as clearly superior to Dovi.

Trusty old chassis'

Never did Doohan any harm. But then again Doohan bullied a bunch of historically weaker opposition in much the same manner Rossi did in his heyday. 


It was only a damn fool in a fright wig that robbed us of Pedro being in the title hunt all season long 2011. Where was Dovi again? Oh yes, feeding off scraps like a hyena following a lions kill.
