No red carpet for Suzuki MotoGP return in 2014

Suzuki will not be granted a brand new entry to complete its anticipated return to the MotoGP grid in 2014. Instead the Japanese factory will have to collaborate with an existing team like Aspar, Gresini or BQR, as Dorna boss Carmelo Ezpeleta seeks to gain some stability in the MotoGP world championship. Suzuki intends to be back on the grid next season...

..and why not a red carpet for any new team??

WTF!!!! Thought we were looking for more numbers on the grid. Bring Suzuki back in their own right if that's what they want to do. OK, while very few of us actually know what goes on behind the scenes it doesn't make much sense. yeah, sure, keep costs down, but if a factory reckons they can enter a proper team, surely it should be fully embraced... lets see, another full factory team and 2 more bikes on the grid. BRING IT ON!!!!

If they did leave after a year or so could you blame them with the way Dorna are carrying on.

Wtf, bet they wouldn't treat Honda the same, and if Aspar run the team we would get 2 more Spanish riders, just what motogp needs !!

Suzuki ?

Oh yes,they are the outfit that scream about Peregrine falcons,just like Kawasaki emblazon Ninja's and whatever. Much like Tridents and Rockets of yesteryear. Ducati made them look idiotic circa 2003 and onwards in GP. Best they and Kawasaki compete in CRT against Aprilia and BMW. Niche spot,lest we forget. No doubt someone will fill me in as to what great competitive tackle they have produced since KRJnr snatched it in 2000. Kawasaki, well, never.  Ezpeleta has called this one right. In for a penny,in for a pound or get out. CF Moto,Mahindra and a bunch of others are perfectly capable of replacing them at half price for given results 4 stroke era.

now you know

Just why the grids are so small with only six bikes capable of winning looks like moto gp is destined to say a bore fest

dont no why they dont just have all factory bikes or all satiite teams that way all the bikes would be even and have a chance of winning a race i think its unfair that good riders like cal dovi bautista and co cant win a race cos the guys in front have got better factory bikes

Moto GP needs stability

And the factories need to follow the rules that suit everyone ,not them. Commitment is needed so , top call Carmelo.

a bit of a novel idea, and i can see the logic behind it, but i'm afraid Carmelo has his analogy all wrong with the Sauber - BMW story.  the start and the end of the story are correct, but what happened in the middle is exactly what he's trying to avoid!  lol
