2013 MotoGP: Cal Crutchlow on Yamaha and Pol Espargaro
In an interview with Autosport, Crutchlow seemed to see things in a clear light and was not nervous at all, as he said he understands how things are, and Pol's advanced discussions (now confirmed as a contract by Tech3) mean that the Spaniard will most likely take his place on the satellite bike.
Speaking on the team's decision to replace him with Pol Espargaro, Crutchlow doesn't give any reasons: “I don't know why the decision has been made, but that's Yamaha and Lin Jarvis's decision and I'll leave it up to them."
With Cal looking for a place on a works bike and his exceptional performance in 2013 so far aboard the satellite machine, it also looks like it's little (if anything at all) he could do more.
Crutchlow makes it very clear that he would not settle for anything else than a factory team, as riding a new satellite bike does not appeal to him any more.
So this leaves our brave Brit with the potential open position at Ducati, in case Hayden goes WSBK as some rumors have it, or ride the new Suzuki to glory. And since the guys from Hamamatsu said they'd have him as a rider at any time, we might just see a great future shaping in for both Cal and Suzuki.
