Recent good results of cal might just impress Ducati and they might have him in serious contention for a contract... Nicky leaving and no other big seats on offer, so cal is going to get tempted for sure... Even last year the situation was like a brit to replace an American till last moment but Rossi move out of duc spoiled it all for cal...

A trap kept ready for cal,, exactly the similar one like what Dovi got... Ex tech three buddies are future ducati buddies...

suprise, suprise, no-one wants to give cal "crashy crutchlow a factory bike?
that might be because teams like to have their bikes in one piece.
at least at ducati he can blame the bike and most will agree with him, ducati have been a coffin nail for lots of riders careers, hayden should have gone years ago, not threatened anything for years now, another collin edwards, nice bloke, but never going to win anything ever again.
crutchlow may just get a honda ride, but expect to see to see him on a red bike!!!, rather him than me, ducis still sound like a bucket of rattly bits to me and they dont appear to have got over their problem of being unusable by most folk.
if we added up all the crashed bikes in moto gp for the last ten years, i wonder who would have the most.
wonder what they would have to offer stoner to try and get him back, with no guarentee that he could do it again for them

cal if you lose Tech3 only your pace will be gone....if you make a move to Ducati your motogp carrier will be gone...its better even to try for Aspar electronics of RdePuniet for one year and in 2015 many things may change you will have wide variety of options....you can be even opted for factory suzuki...Never make a move to ducati....Lot of things left for you it seems

The problem for Cal and Yamaha is that he simply doesn't figure in their future plans. They intend to keep Lorenzo and Rossi as their factory riders into 2015, and even if one of those two did leave, the guy who would step up would be Pol Espargaro, who will have a factory contract as from next year.

I don't see any compelling reason for Cal to stay at Tech 3 for another season The satellite M1s will be less competitive next year (probably no seamless shift) and his position at the end of 2014 would be no stronger than it is now.

The only difference if he stayed another year with Tech 3 would be the possible option of a Suzuki ride in 2015, But what's to say their bike would be any more competitive than the Ducs? And by then the Ducati option would have gone too. It's not an easy decision to make.

Just a few podiums here and there doesn't mean much. With the competent riders not racing and the M1 being such a good machine, where else can he be other than top 3, unless he is such a dud that even a CRT or the 46th rider can get in front of him. Let's not forget that he still had not won a race yet, no matter how "close" he had been. Melandri had already won races on a satellite Honda, and yet still ended up in WSBK. Is Cal any better than Melandri? Nope. Is he better than Dovi? I am sure if Dovi is pilotting the M1 this season he would have been in front of Cal just like last year. If he's even half as good as, say Casey, Yam or Honda would have gone out on a limb to snatch him up.
