MotoGP » Official: Cal Crutchlow to Ducati MotoGP team


There is the will and the effort and the money to turn things around in Ducati. The only question is the length of time it's going to take. If it happens within the next 2 years, then it'll have been a very shrewd move by Cal. If not, then no one will blame the riders and he'll have secured his future financially. Either way, it was the only option on the table that even offered a chance at career progression.

MotoGP » Cal Crutchlow's Ducati MotoGP deal done


@ Yes Yes Yes... "one more year on Tech 3 would set him up well to replace Rossi/Pedrosa in 2015" Rossi has just revealed on Speedweek that he intends to renew his contract for a further 2 years to cover 2015/2016. Alberto Puig meanwhile continues to successfully block any moves to oust Pedrosa from Repsol. It's very unlikely that there'll be any spaces available in the factory Honda or Yamaha teams until 2017.

MotoGP » Poll: Who should get the Factory Ducati ride?


@ Jack Mordino Ok, so fast forward a year: Rossi and Lorenzo both re-sign for another 2 seasons with Yamaha, Dani re-signs for another year or 2 years at Repsol, with Marquez already secure there. Meanwhile the Ducati gig has gone to someone else. What does Crutchlow do then? He's all out of factory options. (Except for Suzuki, who aren't guaranteed to be any more competitive than Ducati). Sometimes you have to take what's real and on the table, even if it's not perfectly ideal.
