The uncertainty has ended. We finally know. Monster Yamaha Tech 3 will keep Cal Crutchlow on its team for the 2013 racing season. The move to keep Crutchlow ends all of the rumors about the British racer moving to a factory seat, to a Ducati Corse, or even completely leaving MotoGP to head on back to the World Superbike circuit.
Many had felt that Crutchlow had been itching to move on to a higher paying racing contract. However, since Valentino Rossi had moved into the vacancy left behind by the departing Ben Spies on the factory team his options had narrowed.
