I guess he needed the money pretty badly, now he really needs to make that money last a long time since Ducati will end his career in moto gp. It was great watching him fight up front, now he will be fighting for 10th against his teammate.

Mind you, we are all seeing the same bike as last year - Audi probably didn't have time enough to fully understand & rectify the bike by the start of the season, so didn't bother. Only those on the inside know what changes lie ahead - we may be eating our words next year ( I hope so ! )

Not suprised and one cannot blame Cal as this ride is for the pension. In this sport one can be hurt and a career shortened. I don't believe Simth will achieve what Cal achieved on the tech 3.
My view is that his style may gel with the ducati.

Its not really a big surprise, just a really great shame about the secrecy so far! For Cal its a win-win situation, he will have a factory bike, more money and this is his chance before its gone for ever and ever. The downside is he maybe taking on a 'poisoned chalice' - then again I may be wrong, he may win races and even the MotoGP title although its a big ask. Whatever happens I wish Cal all the very best.

Wrong wrong wrong , i don't think that crutchlow is more skilled then valentino who could never undrestood the italian factory combination , built on other facts ducati is passing a realy tough years economicly and gabriele del torchio has no thoughts or plans to improve the factory with better staff , ledgends like capirossi and rossi lost out with ducati so considering crutchlow normal talent he'll suffer and destroy himself

If Cal is getting some factory support at Tech 3 but he's still complaining that it isn't sufficient, then we should all prepare ourselves for many more complaints about Ducati and their lack of timely support once he takes the pilot seat.
