MotoGP » Cal Crutchlow leaves Ducati for Honda?


Don-R:
ducati1098: should he get a factory supported Honda then that's even better for him which could possibly lead a better ride in 2016.
He will. Cal is getting a 2015 factory Honda, same spec as Marc & Dani. Any updates will feed to the factory guys first though, so as at Tech 3, his bike may not finish the season on the same spec as the 2 Repsols.
It doesn't say that Cal will get the same spec as Dani and Marc. Cal had contract with LCR and not with factory honda which brdle had. So cal might end up or passibly racing next year with this year spec. But definitely not the same spec as the factory bikes.

MotoGP » Smith ready to fight for Tech 3 seat


Just like Herve said he will wait until silverstone to decide who will be riding for him next year. That give BS 3 races left to sort it out and get a result other than flash fast lap on FP. Personally i think BS already lost his ride as herve already made his decision to replace him. He is only sorting out some detail who will be riding the bike from the riders in moto3.

MotoGP » LCR Honda confirms Cal Crutchlow


Joeski: Well...there is my confirmation...I just asked for less than 1 minute ago..... PS Just because he got a Honda does not mean he will be able to do well on it... he said it himself...he spent 3 year learning to ride like Lorenzo...he had to copy a style..to get fast...if the Honda requires a different style, he will still struggle although not like he was at Ducati!! He adapts slowly and I cannot see him breaking any boundaries in first year!! maybe he will show some pace at end of 2015 as he gets used to it... However...I hope he stuffs all that mess and make me eat my shoe!!because we need more riders at the front of GP!!!
Just like what post on other topic. His result on honda will not be any difference than brdle this year. Though the bike is capable to be in the podium but now that rossi found his ground again on M1 and marquez is far more superior than last year when cal is mixing it out with the guys. I still find it hard to believe that he wil

MotoGP » LCR Honda confirms Cal Crutchlow


I think Cal should stay with ducati and finished his contract with them and have a chance to see what the 2015 bike can do. After all everybody knows that ducati is in the building mode and this years results is what is expected so it should not hurts his value if he sign elsewhere for 2016. If he fails to claim podium with LCR next year he might be looking for ride back in wsbk.

MotoGP » LCR Honda confirms Cal Crutchlow


Yearby23: I can see this working and Cal being pretty fast on the satellite factory Honda, he is an aggressive rider and that bike demands and aggressive rider.
I don't see it working for Alvaro Bautista. I know for sure he is one damn aggressive rider. Cal is like Spies, he will have flash of good results but never a consistent rider to be at the same level of marc, jl, dani and vale. Just like ben spies said if he had come earlier in gp he might have a chance to fight for the title ones but not every year.
