I don't think they actually need to offer Cal more money than Ducati. They just need to be close. They also offer Cal a better chance to finish races on the podium and increase his net worth.
Very interesting stuff. Especially considering Lin Jarvis has said to expect an announcement from Crutchlow before Indy. Why would Lin Jarvis know or comment unless he was part of the announcement?
If true, and I hope it is, that would be best for everyone, IMHO.
