Some people really don't get it - Cal's move to Ducati is a smart move.
He is currently not paid to ride the Tech 3 Yamaha - the only income he gets is from personal sponsorship.
From next year he will get a decent salary to ride a bike that everyone rubbishes. His career will not be harmed - if he manages 7th or 8th then he will be no worse that the supposed GOAT. If he does better then he will be a superstar.
And Audi will not be happy to continue 'as is'. They are throwing considerable resources at it and the Ducati will improve.
All in all, Cal will give it his all, unlike Rossi who just cruised around and took the pay-cheque. Yes, he will crash a lot but Ducati has signed someone who is motivated and committed.
