Suzuki 2014 Wildcard Appearances still Uncertain
text size: A- A+
The tests the Hamamatsu manufacturer made this year with Randy de Puniet and Nobuatsu Aoki showed a pretty decent starting ground for developing a factory machine with real chances to show real speed in racing conditions.
Still far from the point where Suzuki could start making podium claims once more, questions about 2014 wildcard appearances started popping up. Suzuki's MotoGP project boss Davide Brivio says they can't think about such matters now or for the near future.
While the comeback was postponed until 2015, it would only seen natural that Suzuki machinery went public then. However, from a technical point of view, pitting the the new bike against the competitor's machinery would be very helpful. It's only under real racing conditions when the true capabilities of the bike and rider are fully shown.
We're positive we'll be hearing from Suzuki pretty soon, anyway. Still early to make suppositions, but we cannot help wonder who's going to be filling the Hamamatsu factory rider slots...
