LCR and Honda back Cal Crutchlow to bounce back in 2015

Cal Crutchlow’s new 2015 team boss Lucio Cecchinello and senior Honda management have backed the British rider to bounce back from a torrid spell with Ducati next season. Crutchlow will switch to the Cecchinello’s LCR Honda squad to ride a factory-backed RC213V after deciding to quit Ducati halfway through a two-year deal. The 28-year-old has become the latest high profile victim of...

Haven't we seen this story before?

 Someone mentioned on another thread they thought it was a recycled story, i am sure that i have read these quotes on another story on this site?

As for Crutchlow, i hope he does bounce back. As i have said before the game could well be up if he doesn't meet the fairly high expectations of HRC and with Scott Redding and Jack Miller potentially waiting in the wings the pressure will be on I'm sure.

I believe that Honda didn't want Cal to satellite team.For Honda LCR +GRESINI are the teams that prepare youngs rider in their first season on top catogore for the factory team.Cal was sponsor's choice.And Cechinello isn't stupid.With the money of two differents sponsors he can run two bikes.The second wiil be fifth RCv1000R? Honda will have a gun on Cal's head before every race next year. If he can't score a pondium or finish fourth on thirds tail Honda will start war against him.

And a HRC gun to Cal's head too

That must be clear. Next year he has to fight for the podium.

No minced words there from Suppo. Cal's got one year only to man up.

Yet I wonder who HRC's preference would have been given they'd also lost faith in Bradl. Redding I would've thought as the obvious choice. But then why parachute fellow Brit Crutchlow in there?

Obvious isn't it? ...

... Crutchlow's like 'Plumbers Mate' - or a plaster on a wound caused by bad-planning.

 

He's just a very temporary fix.
