Well considering his contract at t3 was up this year its a no brainer really.

'Hello herve? Yeah you know how i dont have a contract with you as of the end of the year? Yeah well im gonna ride the red pig for 3 mill a year then retire. Cheers now'

Absolutely boss.

Do you reckon that bloke with the mad hair and massive soul patch is standing there at each race in the Duke garage, with all that technology and knowhow milling around thinking, "yes, i'm satisfied with this situation" while he watches half the CRT's fly past his bikes like they're not there. The spondoolie they're just throwing down the drain must be absolutely shocking.

Somethings gotta give. And it will. Otherwise whats the point?

Best of luck to him, he's going to need more than luck though.

I've got a feeling it's going to get even harder for Ducati next year, with privateer teams getting decent engines and of course the Honda production racer. These rule changes could push Ducati even further down the grid unless they pull something out the bag.

Cal will not be riding a 2013 Ducati GP13 next year. It will be a new bike. With the resources and racing heritage of Audi I would not be surprised to see a much improved Ducati GP bike for 2014.

Cal will probably make at least 3 times the money with Ducati then he was making at Tech 3. I don't think it was a hard decision.
