The Hamamatsu factory are back on top of the MotoGP™ world for the first time since 2000
And already phenomenal season can get even better for Suzuki in Portimao. The Rider and Team Championships are now wrapped up and in the hands of Mir and Team Suzuki Ecstar, with Petronas Yamaha SRT now 79 points behind with 45 left on the table. Now, it’s a straight-up fight for the Constructor crown between Suzuki and Ducati at the Algarve International Circuit, with Yamaha having an outside chance still.
Hamamatsu vs Bologna, Japan vs Italy. Suzuki and Ducati are on 201 points apiece. Whichever bike takes the chequered flag first, that’s who’ll claim the Constructor title, with Yamaha needing a disaster from both Suzuki and Ducati to salvage something from the season. If Suzuki do manage it, the coveted MotoGP™ Triple Crown will be theirs.
The last time Suzuki won the Constructor title? 1982, 37 years ago. – www.motogp.com
