Veteran MotoGP man sticking with Indianapolis chassis settings
LORIS CAPIROSSI has said that he will stick with the new chassis set-up on his factory Suzuki MotoGP for this weekend's race at Misano.
The Italian former 125 and 250GP world champion said: "I am really excited about going to Italy for my home GP. Misano is a beautiful place and I really like the circuit. I will have many friends and family there and for sure the Italian fans will certainly be giving me a lot of support. I have been fifth and seventh here in the last two years and would love to get on the podium this time - especially because it is in Italy - and will certainly be trying as hard as I can to achieve that. We made big steps with the chassis at Indianapolis and will have a good start point on Friday, we don't know the full potential of it yet, but we will certainly be trying to find out in Misano."
His team-mate Chris Vermeulen, who will not be riding for the Suzuki team next year, being replace by Alvaro Bautista, is still towing the factory line though, he added: ""I am looking forward to going to Misano as it is a track I enjoy a lot; also it has been really warm there recently so it will be good to get back to the hot weather. I was fast there last year, apart from a small mishap on the first lap and I was on the podium two years ago so it holds some good memories for me. It is a track that has suited the Suzuki well in the past and we have good experience with the bikes there, I am sure we're going to roll the bikes out of the box with a good set-up on Friday and push for a front-running position all weekend."
