Capirossi has been at Ducati since 2003
Veteran MotoGP rider Loris Capirossi will race for Suzuki next season with an option to stay on in 2009.

The 34-year-old Italian is being replaced at current team Ducati by Marco Melandri next year.

Capirossi held talks with Ducati about staying on but was unhappy with the way the team handled Melandri's signing.

"The moment has come for a change and to try new challenges," said Capirossi, who will ride alongside Australian Chris Vermeulen at Suzuki.
