The news of the return of Livio Suppo, a historic figure in the MotoGP scene, as team manager of the Suzuki Ecstar team, is one of those pieces that add to a picture, that of the 2022 season, which is now even richer and more competitive. The absence of a real team manager, without detracting from the work done by Sahara-san last season, may have influenced in the past and even the riders themselves on several occasions wished it was necessary. The Suzuki team is thus boosted with a figure of absolute importance in what, according to what was glimpsed during the tests in Indonesia, will be a championship in which every single detail will make the difference.
“I am really proud to be here for the first time with the Suzuki Ecstar team – the Italian manager said – with almost 25 years of experience in motorcycle racing, first with the Benetton team, then Ducati for eleven years and another eight in Honda HRC. After that experience I decided to switch off. Then Sahara-san lately contacted me asking if I was interested in returning to MotoGP and I honestly thought it was a great opportunity to come back with a great squad and great riders and here I am. “
