Ducati have apparently offered British star Cal Crutchlow a two year deal to ride their MotoGP bike. But, given its reputation as a career buster, should he go for it?

Cal should stay for another year and see what development the duke makes,
yam are happy to keep the tech 3 bikes just behind the factory bikes as they can keep the honda's off yams arse.
however in the next two years or so i think ther will be just a grid full of crt machines as they are a third of the price of a satalight machine . and factory teams will be a thing of the past, its sad but if the ressesion doesnt end then thats a sad fact . As money is tight.
I would love to see a grid full of factory bikes Hondas , Yamahas ,Kawasaki, Suzukis,Bmws , Triumphs and Nortons now that would be awsome .
We can all dream cant we

if its available take an extra year on a good handling bike i.e the yam so he knows the tracks well,then you never know the duc might progress enough in a years time to warrant taking the lucre
imo ducati need to take a step back (lets face it the bikes worse since jb and vale have been playing with it) stoner put total faith in the electronics when he rode it as did capi on the 990 ,vale cant/wont ride like that and im not sure if cal can/will either
good luck to cal though whatever he does hes been awesome this year ,podium cant be far away now

Ducati quits MotoGP future will come into serious doubt.
Ducati withdraw from the championship will spring the future of MotoGP into serious doubt a two manufacturer championship does not sound right in my view.
