MotoGP rider Dani Pedrosa says that he was “more or less” convinced two years ago itself that at the end of the 2018 season, he would leave team Honda. The 13-year-old relationship now comes to an end.
Pedrosa had been a factory MotoGP rider for the Japanese brand Honda since 2006. And has always raced Honda bikes in his entire Grand prix career.
Honda announced the replacement of the rider earlier this month after a poor start of Pedrosa in the 2018 season.
“Well of course two years ago is a long time ago, but it started like two years ago.
As they knew already two years ago with the previous people in the team, they knew that it was already [likely to happen]. I said to them more or less this would happen, so at the end it is a mutual thing. Of course you realise, especially more when it comes to the reality completely, but more or less it was already spoken before. Bottom of FormIt is me, myself, you need to look for new things and I think it is a good moment to start looking at what you can do next.
It is quite simple, it is not so complicated I assume, try to believe,” says Pedrosa.
