@67Shakey @calcrutchlow ha ha, problem is kid I like (love) podiums too, needed to be somewhere they were possible, Moto GP they definitely weren’t!!
Rumor is that Suzuki are working out details to make RdP their official test rider for 2013, while
he rides CRT for Aspar. He would then become a Suzuki Moto GP rider for 2014.
Can't be confirmed until the deal is done.
