Cal Crutchlow to stay with Tech 3 Yamaha for 2013

British rider Cal Crutchlow has signed a new one-year deal with the Monster Yamaha Tech 3 squad for the 2013 MotoGP world championship.

1 year

seems like Cal might be eyeing Hayden's Ducati or a Suzuki seat (if still coming back) for 2014. Hope he gets a decent start tomorrow and can grab a podium. Would love to see what Bradl or Rea could do on the works HRC. Anyone know anything (rumors) about who will be Dovi's crew?

Well done..

Cal, pleased to see he's staying and has made the sensible decision from a racing standpoint. In all honesty, I think it's a blessing in disguise he didn't wind up at Ducati. He's still young and will have plenty of opportunity to top up the bank balance by staying on what is clearly a better bike.

He can free his mind from all the disappointment and bullshit now to concentrate on getting some better results. Beating Dovi more often than not during the run in would be sweet, starting tomoz.

Best of British.

Dovi's crew

Can't see dovi keeping the same crew as he has now, they will be Bradleys crew I would think.
