Guintoli interview: not really surprised by the MotoGP titles of Mir and the Suzuki team
Following the 2020 coronations of Joan Mir and his Suzuki Ecstar team in MotoGP, Site contacted Sylvain Guintoli, GSX-RR test rider, to talk about the past season: its ups (easy), its downs (the injury de Marquez), its side effects (Iannone and Lorenzo), its consequences (satellite team and Suzuki news)… Interview !
Seven months ago on the occasion of the first anti-Covid-19 confinement, the Journal moto du Net had a long interview with Sylvain Guintoli. At the time, the World Superbike champion (2014 on Aprilia RSV4) was working hard on his new project, which has been largely successful since: his YouTube channel.
- MNC of March 31, 2020 :
- MNC of November 17, 2020 :
Today, he admits, his videos have momentarily taken a back seat: "Guinters" may have driven much less for the Suzuki development team this short and intense 2020 season compared to previous years, the more "British". French pilots are nonetheless "busy". Busy.
Sylvain has had a lot to do lately, between the thunderous and victorious end of the season for his team and the young but mature Joan Mir, his freelance commentator for Canal +, the meticulous preparation of his personal GSX-R1000R, his contacts with the future team Yoshimura-SERT (shhh) … Not to mention the management of his five "kids" during this second confinement !
Fortunately, Sylvain appreciates MNC and its readers. He therefore gave us a full half hour of his precious schedule to analyze the coronations of pilot and team of his Hamamatsu comrades, the success of "his" GSX-RR and its similarities with the M1, the only other 4-in- MotoGP line which also exploits the Michelin cars very well…
Sylvain Guintoli also returns for us on the injury and the future – very uncertain seen from the outside – of "champion" Marc Marquez, on the unfortunate case of his former colleague Iannone, on the replacement of his colleague Lorenzo by his friend Crutchlow at Yamaha, etc..
Le Journal moto du Net also took the opportunity to ask him to send messages to the big bosses of Suzuki: to win the constructor title in MotoGP, shouldn’t we start a satellite team? And to capitalize on their success in 2020, should its range of motorcycles and scooters not be quickly renewed? ?
Site is counting for example on the venerable Sahara-San (responsible for MotoGP projects at Suzuki and father of the current GSX-R1000) to relaunch the GSX-R750: 130 horsepower for 190 kilograms all full, simple and efficient electronics, a nice look and a compressed price (hum). And then a MotoGP Replica for friend Sylvain? Aligatô gozaimasu! thank you so much…
