“The last race of the season did not go exactly as planned. It started with the problems on Friday and continued with a crash in race 1 which also created some problems in race 2. This is certainly not the way I wanted to finish with the team, today I wanted very different results. I have spent wonderful years with them and I must say it weighs to have to leave them but it is also true that it is right for me to take advantage of the great opportunity that’s been offered to me for next year. I really have to thank Giuliano and the whole team at ParkinGO, they were really a family to me. Now I have to learn a new bike, we’ll see you soon.”
