[kropotkin thinks...] - Davide Brivio Interview, Part 2: On Johann Zarco, Alex Rins,

If you enjoyed reading this article, please click here to view it on Kropotkin's site, MotoGP Matters.


In the second part of my interview with Suzuki team boss Davide Brivio on talent, the Italian talks about the process of identifying and developing talent. We talked about Johann Zarco, and Suzuki's decision to choose Alex Rins over Johann Zarco, and the difference between being a factory and a satellite rider. We discussed the merits of having a feeder system, teams at various levels of racing to channel talent into MotoGP.

Brivio also spoke at some length about how he came to choose to sign Maverick Viñales. He compares that process to the decision to sign Alex Rins, and how he goes about identifying and deciding on talent. There are no guarantees, Brivio says, but all you can do is follow a process and hope the gamble pays off.

The second half of the interview appears below. Though the second half of this interview stands up on its own, reading it in combination with the first half will put it into a better perspective, and add more depth. The first half of the interview with Davide Brivio can be found here.

Q: Do you regret not signing Johann Zarco? [Suzuki had a pre-contract with Zarco during the 2016 season, but ended up taking Alex Rins instead.]

I'm a bot. I don't need no stinkin' signature...
