    Aleix will not go back to Suzuki. Not so much because of the way he was let go, but because he specifically has been describing how last year's Suzuki did not suit his riding style, and how much the character of the Aprilia does suit him. Which is showing in his speed this year, which has been pretty good to excellent at just about all tracks except Austin. That he didn't score many points yet, has more to do with all things having to click into place yet, and lack of a bit of luck so far. The potential for good results is there, and that did not seem to be the case with the development direction of the Suzuki, for him at least. It would have been VERY interesting to see what Lorenzo could have done on that Suzuki instead of Iannone. They are both on the wrong bikes for their riding style now.

    HRC have signed with Cal Crutchlow. thanks for the info David.

    I guess that means that HRC are not likely to sign Jack Miller.

    I hope that JackAssen with secure a good ride for next year. Also hope he has a good race at 2/3 of the Cathedral of Speed.

    They demolished one third of the Cathedral to put up a parking lot. Shame.

    Wish'n & hoping to get to the circuit van Drenth in 2018. still have the original layout on the video game. where nobody is ever injured. It is a hoot!

    Congratulations to Cal Crutchlow. I hope he is highly valued & very well paid as a Gp winner, world champion & all round top guy.

    No  Maniac Joe doesn't seem to be very happy with the Suzuki. I am tempted to think A.I. 29 would be good on the Priller. But is not the Aprilia RS-GP more like the Suzi, high corner speed rather than Ducati give away a tenth in the corner & make up half a second on the straight, stop for the next corner then fire it out again at warp factor eleven.

    I think Aleix could get podiums with Suzuki, if not wins.  Aprilia seems a longer project with less resources.   If Suzuki came hat in hand, 'hey, we made a big mistake.  We need you!', would Aleix say no?    Imagine a straight swap of Aleix & Iannone, I think that Aprilia loses.  Maniac Joe doesn't seem to be good at development.   Rea -> Suzuki?  don't know, intriguing ..
