Cal Crutchlow vows not to ‘wreck’ Tech 3 team

Cal Crutchlow wants current crew chief Daniele Romagnoli to join him at Ducati in 2014 but insists he will not decimate his side of the Monster Yamaha Tech 3 team when he leaves to join the Bologna factory. The 27-year-old has penned a two-year deal with Ducati and key personnel from his current French-based Tech 3 squad have been linked with...

Cal's always said that he wants a factory ride. He has one. Where's the problem?

Crutchlow has done what he had to do

Yamaha were never ever going to give him a full spec bike, either in the Tech3 team or in the factory team. It's what he wanted from them, they won't accede. If he'd have stayed at Tech3 with a Yamaha contract and a pay hike, it still doesn't give him the bike he wants and with Espargaro signed as team mate by Yamaha, not Tech3, who has supposedly been promised a factory spec bike, Crutchlow disappears down the pecking order for performance parts. With it, the chances of scoring even podiums also disappear.

So why not take a ride with a factory that will pay much more and offer no worse a chance of on track success than what Yamaha were offering. There is always the chance that they may get the bike working. If they don't he's no worse off than being no.4 at Yamaha. They pretty well run Tech3, not Herve.

He's sold out to no-one, he owes nothing to anyone but himself and his family and his priorty is securing his and their future

If riders have such a responsibility to their fans, why does the richest of them all continue to milk money from his considerable fanbase, some of whom are probably quite poor, by  continually making money from his brand name. Selling out to capitalsm surely, by your book..

Put a sock in it ffs.

Interesting article...

 ...that plainly illustrates Crutchlow's pragmatic approach to his decision making process with respect to Ducati. It finally put's to bed this notion that he's gone there for the money alone and show's his desire to get on the best possible bike he can.


What this article does highlight though, is Dovi's greedy gaff in taking the ride a year too early - I think it tell's you all you need to know about his mindset and his own personal understanding that he'll only ever be a journeyman in this paddock. He's taken the money and who can blame him for that?...
