Dorna’s Managing Director of Events Area, Javier Alonso, has told motogp.com that the door is open for a Suzuki return to the MotoGP World Championship in 2014, after the Japanese outfit visited the on-going Sepang test this week.
He commented: “They are visiting us, they are having a look, and we’ve offered them the possibility to test whenever they would be ready to test. And this is what they are studying right now, the possibilities, and how they want to continue with their programme.”
As to whether Suzuki has fully committed to returning, Alonso said: “They are still working on the decision, they are working on the project, and I think they have some important meetings after this….we have our doors open for them.”
Suzuki has already been told that it will have to enter the championship via an existing team, to bring stability to the championship and give value to existing teams.
Alonso explained: “The situation is that we have a full crowded grid and of course we commit with the teams that are here with us today, and they will keep the right to continue to be there. Therefore if everybody wants to continue and Suzuki wants to come back they will have to reach an agreement with one of those teams.”
