MCN: Romagnoli to Crew Chief for Cal Crutchlow

British weekly MCN reports that Cal Crutchlow’s Crew Chief on the Monster Yamaha Tech 3 team for his debut campaign in MotoGP in 2011 will be Daniele Romagnoli. However, MCN says that the Brit is pushing hard to bring over his current WSBK Crew Chief Marcus Eschenbacher.

Crutchlow, who according to MCN will have his ride of the YZR-M1in Japan later this month, said: “As far as Yamaha goes it's confirmed, but from my point of view it isn't. I'm still pushing to take Marcus with me and Daniele becomes the team coordinator. Yamaha want to keep Marcus in WSBK but I've proposed that he is my Crew Chief in MotoGP and that he also works on engine development between races. I want to take someone with me who I'm comfortable with and who knows how I work and Marcus knows what I need to be on the pace.”
