Cal needs to be on a factory bike! In my opinion, he absolutely deserves it!!! I think he'd do a good job on the Ducati, but I thought Valentino would as well. Suzuki should defo be talking to him!!!

He's doing a great job on the Yamaha and he's an entertaining racer, and personality. He just goes in to corners a little hot some times, but thats part of the appeal. Great flying lap times and not afraid of a bit of push and shove. What more would you want?

@CS27 sorry but the ruling for each factory is four bikes in two, two bike teams. So there will be no full factory Honda available for next year.

And so far there has been no official ruling on whether production RCVs will be allowed to run in addition to the four full prototype Hondas. Honda have already stated that the production racer is not a CRT bike. Nakamoto described it as "a cheaper option for satellite teams". As such a production RCV would have to replace one of the allocation of four bikes. IOW there is no prospect of an addtional full fat Honda for Cal or anybody else.

I dunno what with current Brits MotoGP riders. Talk about factory ride before win anything.

Crutchlow had a bike that could beat Lorenzo and Marquez, but didn't do a sh!t about it.

He should learn from the Aussie that ride a Redbull Yamaha some times ago and wins a couple races on a Satellite bike. Then he got a factory ride.

Even a New Zealander also win on that Redbull Satellite Yamaha beating Doohan on Brit home soil.

What gives?
