Suzuki blames the current economic situation for the planned withdrawal.

Suzuki Motor Corporation is in discussions with Dorna regarding the possibility of ending Suzuki’s participation in MotoGP at the end of 2022. The Hamamatsu factory took exactly ten days to what had already leaked out at the Jerez test on May 2, although a new five-year contract with Dorna was signed in November 2021 and riders Alex Rins and Joan Mir are fourth and sixth in the current Drivers’ Championship. So far, Suzuki has not yet agreed on a contract termination with its contractual partner Dorna. A hefty contractual penalty will be due – for services not rendered.
