Cal Crutchlow has revealed that he is spoilt for choice when it comes to deciding which team he will join at the end of this season, after receiving five different offers.

The 27-year-old has also confirmed that some of the teams offering him a contract aren't involved in the MotoGP World Championship.

Crutchlow's Monster Yamaha Tech-3 contract runs out at the end of the current season, and there have been reports that he has been offered a contract renewal.

However, the British rider has said that he feels no pressure to decide quickly, and doesn't expect a deal to be made before the Indianapolis MotoGP race next month.

"I won't make a fast decision and in my eyes I won't make a decision by Indy. I need time and am speaking to five teams, and not just in this championship, so we'll see what happens," said Crutchlow.

The British rider is currently in 5th place in the world championship after a disappointing 7th place finish at the Laguna Seca last weekend, but he doesn't think it will have a lasting effect, saying "We had one bad weekend.

"I've dropped to fifth in the Championship, had my worst qualifying but I still finished within 15 seconds of the winner.

"In some other races it might have been a fourth place finish but it was a difficult race for Yamaha and Valentino and Jorge did a better job. I had to finish and I finished seventh."
