During its involvement in MotoGP between 2002 and 2011, and as 2015, Suzuki has worked without a satellite outfit, scoring just two successes using Chris Vermeulen at lemans in 2007 and Maverick Vinales 2 years ago at Silverstone.

Suzuki had a torrid season in 2017 but was substantially improved this year and the team was looking at registering up a satellite team with Marc VDS one of the main contenders.

Brivio confessed that Suzuki’s financial limitations make it difficult to have a satellite group, however it continues to be described as a”target” none the less.

“That really is an ongoing argument for all of us in the organization,” explained Brivio.

“As a team, we would like to get a satellite team here to get far more info and to grow much further the bike and what.

“However, for that company it is a large effort because anyway we don’t have so much funds and perhaps not many people enjoy maybe our competitors.

“Anyway we keep talking and I hope that we are able to do some thing for your own 2020, even though resembles the situation with the teams, they’re all committed for 2020, so it might be difficult.

“But that really is some thing which is within our mind, our discussion and is still a target for Suzuki but the decision has ahead .”

With Tech 3 linking KTM and the newly-formed SIC Petronas team running Yamahas, Suzuki and Aprilia are the only two manufacturers with only the factory teams.

Aprilia boss Romano Albesiano said that having a satellite team isn’t on the agenda right now, and the team’s focus is about making the most of its own newly-formed evaluation team headed by Bradley Smith.

“For Aprilia isn’t a primary target, we made a decision to put money into the evaluation group, doing wild card participations at the right level.

“This, being focused on the two factory riders and something high tech evaluation rider, it is the perfect way to produce to get a structure which isn’t giant just like individuals have been.”
