Vicki Smith for Ducati.net's insight:

Ducati terminates Cal Crutchlow Contract for 2015 (updated)

Ducati terminates Cal Crutchlow Contract for 2015 (updated) | Ductalk Ducati News | Scoop.it

Ducati Corse and Cal Crutchlow terminate contract ahead of 2015


Ducati Corse announced today that it has reached an agreement with its factory rider Cal Crutchlow to terminate, ahead of time, the contract that ties the British rider to the Italian team in MotoGP for 2014 and also for next season. The two factory Ducati Team riders for 2015 will now be Andrea Dovizioso and Andrea Iannone.

Vicki Smith for Ducati.net's insight:

Not a bombshell, more like the only solution.  How are you going to test the 2015 bike with him on it and leaving to become the first guy you need to pass to get to the podium?


Update - Motomatters and MotoGP.com report that there is some confusion and Cal Crutchlow will remain on the Ducati until the end of 2014
