Crutchlow continues to deny rumors of the deal being nearly done, but there is so much smoke that some kind of fire must be present, however small.

Someone school me!: Why the hell would Cal want to ride the Ducati?

He's currently and consistently beating all the factory Ducs on his Tech3 Yamaha. Obviously, there's some other factor I'm not seeing. Factory or not, the Ducatis are shit, and unlikely to stop being so for many years.
