Cal Crutchlow signs for Ducati

Cal Crutchlow has taken a massive career gamble by accepting the tough challenge of transforming Ducati’s flagging fortunes in MotoGP next season. The British rider rejected an improved pay deal to stay with the Monster Yamaha Tech 3 squad and will be reunited with former teammate Andrea Dovizioso on a factory Desmosedici in 2014. The former World Supersport champion had until last...

not dorna

wake up!!! our brit push for a world champion is not one of uncles main concernes now is it, its all about keeping the green coming in, so they protect their own,mm,pol,jorge,and may aswell be spanish rossi, if ducati fall again which im sure they will, who do you think bails them out???factory teams can only afford to not win for so long,and cals 5m  is pocket change compared to rossi's 15m(7.5m compared to cals 5m a year).

the rossi big finacial move to ducati from yamaha was all his doing too,ppl in this series do what they are told,and im sure it affects the guys on and off track, soon wsbk will be controlled and spoiled too, im glad i watched all the classics, and the casey winning days, because now its a bit of a joke, cal and brads manager yes i am aware of that, but how does that change what you have said?? cal has not lied to anyone or are you a paddock gossip?

Really ?????

Some ridiculous comments on here. There's only 3 factory teams. Only one factory seat available. 

Cal has this seat now.

Far to many negative comments.

Congratulations are called for, not criticism. It's a great achievement. Yeah, the bike is not great but how many of you are in a genuine position to comment on future development ?

Good luck to him I say, He's a big lad who has made his choice, I'm sure he knows what he's doing.

Ye know Cal was never gonna get the equipment at Yammy to win the championship, why would they give it to him with Yorgi and Rossi in the factory team. Pol was signed by Yammy to run at Tech3, Cal would have ended up been given the 4th best Yammy or the Tech3 parts bin special.

Bradls Honda was never up for grabs,can ye remember Honda saying that he'd get full factory support in 2014.Probably it's also good for Dorna to have a German on the grid.

So he took the Ducati and with it come a pocket full of cash. I don't and you don't know what his driving force was to take the deal after all it's got a pig of a reputation but in reality it was the only option he had.I my self hope that Ducati find the magic bullet and they sort the front, you probably hope they dont and ye can spend countless hours of ye boring life saying I told ye so.
