Why Suzuki's Brivio replacement must come from within
With its charismatic leader Davide Brivio leaving for Formula 1, the Suzuki MotoGP squad he turned into a world championship-winning force in 2020 has a major recruitment headache that it needs to resolve carefully.
Brivio's departure from Suzuki leaves the Japanese factory with a huge dilemma: whether to find a new team boss from outside or hand the role to somebody who can maintain their current philosophy.
The Italian's bombshell move, which will see him being announced shortly as CEO of the Alpine F1 team, is particularly surprising as it comes a matter of months after Suzuki celebrated its first world championship title in 20 years, at the hands of Joan Mir.
