Tech 3 boss ‘sad’ at Cal Crutchlow departure

Cal Crutchlow’s Monster Yamaha Tech 3 boss Herve Poncharal has spoken of his sadness at the British rider’s decision to complete a lucrative switch to Ducati’s struggling factory MotoGP squad in 2014. Poncharal and Crutchlow have developed a close relationship away from the world championship paddock and the French team boss said the 2009 World Supersport champion’s exit would be felt...

True. The point I was trying to make was a 3rd year for Dovi at Ducati is unlikely. He hasn't really done much better than Nicky who has been rewarded for his loyalty with the sack.

With the two Spaniards recently injured Cal had a few chances to win a race and didn’t manage it.

The move to Ducati is sensible for him, earn as much money as you can while you can.

He’s achieved more than most British riders for quite some time and you never know Ducati might have a breakthrough…

Calm down.

A really nice interview with Herve and its obviously a genuine closeness they (Tech 3) developed with Cal.

For real race fans once again its Ducati who although struggling are providing the interest. 
For the las two years we`ve had Jorge or Danni winning.
OK now we`ve got MM in the mix, but its hardly F1 where any one of 6-8 can get the win.
I`m looking forward to seeing how Cal gets on with this bike and how he fairs up against Dovi.
Good luck Cal/Dovi/Ducati.

All you need to worry about my reptilian friend...

 ...is Herve thinks he's being honest. 

 

Your problem is you worry about things too much. You might want to try a different thread. It's just 'factory' round here..

BT...?

If this was all about getting Brit fans to sign up to BT then you would have thought they would have wanted Cal on a good bike! :P

Eddie, are you still worrying about our Cal..

 ..ah, bless!

 

You really mustn't worry though - Cal's financially set for life now, which is great and on top of that he'll finally get this Ducati project on the right track. 

Dovi must be thrilled to have him in the team, particularly as Herve is said to be astonished at how well Cal can set up a bike and get it going faster, something the Italian seems to be struggling with...
