Crutchlow will be offered a factory ride next year. Probably to replace Pedrosa if he doesn't step it up and beat Marquez.
Honda usually signs their riders around summer, and at that time Pedrosa was beating Stoner in the standings -- would've been interesting to see who they'd pick, though sure, a two-time WC is going to have more appeal than a guy who's almost there repeatedly.
Pedrosa has a two year contract and is there through 2014 -- keep up.
