The 2018 MotoGP™ season proved one of best in recent years for Team SUZUKI ECSTAR with Alex Rins and Andrea Iannone collecting a total of nine podium positions between them in the 19-round series. And to celebrate this result, Suzuki Motor Corporation has produced a new end-of-season Wallpaper for Suzuki fans to download.

Rins claimed his first ever MotoGP podium aboard the GSX-RR in April at the Argentinian GP with third place on the podium. This was followed two weeks later by Iannone with third at the Circuit Of The Americas in the USA. Iannone then took third at Jerez, in Spain at the beginning of May; and then Rins went one better at Assen, The Netherlands in July with a hard-fought second position – the team’s best result of the season to that point.

As the season progressed, the results continued, with Iannone third at Aragon, Spain in September, followed by his best result on the GSX-RR at the Australian GP in October, taking the second step of the podium.

Team SUZUKI ECSTAR recorded more podiums, with Rins also racing to third at SMC’s home GP at Motegi, Japan in October and then second position at Sepang, Malaysia; plus, at the season finale - his home GP in Valencia, Spain on November 18th - took another hard-fought-for second position.
