Cal is 27 years old. Without a championship, or at least some wins, he maybe realises that he realistically doesn't have many years left in MotoGP and if he wants to safeguard his financial future he needs the big money NOW. Yamaha were keen to keep him at Tech 3, not only to act as a "spare" if either Jlo or VR46 pick up lengthy injuries, but also to prevent his talents going to a rival team. But in 2015 Cal will be 29 years old and the good seats don't go to riders at that age. I would have liked to see him fulfill his potential on the M1, but if the Ducati continues to be an also-ran at 29 he will be welcome in WSBK and Endurance racing. So all is not lost. Good luck, Cal.
