says he simply had no other choice but to accept the biggest payday of his career to become the latest ‘savior’ for ’s troubled Desmosedici project.

A two-year deal that will secure his financial future and a contract that guarantees his status as factory rider proved irresistible to the 27-year-old Briton.

Crutchlow returns to racing after the summer break for the Indianapolis Grand Prix this Sunday secure in the knowledge that from 2014 he is a full factory rider. It is something he wanted from Yamaha, who were unwilling to match Ducati’s dollars and factory level bikes and technical support.

Crutchlow will complete the nine races remaining this season with the Monster Tech3 Yamaha team.
