Dominique Aegerter was fired from his (former) team after signing for Leopard racing

This is his (Instagram) statement:

"I canít understand the reaction of the team and it is also hard for me to accept it. I am very, very disappointed. In my opinion, I didnít anything wrong when I signed with another team. This contract includes all the prerequisites I wanted to create for the next season. Apart from this, I have a valid rider contract with my current team, which I would have like to meet it until the end of the season and as always I wanted to give my best during the last races. However, it is a very unattractive end of this long-term cooperation. The farewell in this way from my mentor and sponsor, Mr. Oliver Metraux, I feel very sorry for it. On the other hand, together with my manager Dr. Robert Siegrist, we tried everything to fulfill my contract until the end of the season. So I only can hope that there will be something else for the last races this year. Regarding my shoulder, I feel better and fit every day. Iím a racer and I donít want to do anything else than to compete in races. The last races should also help me to return to my performance. Anyway, we're not giving up to be back on a racing machine soon."
Might have something to do with his statement after signing with Suter bike:

Iím very happy to fix my ride in 2017 finally which sees a comeback aboard a Suter bike in Leopard Racing for me. Iím really pleased about this and also it was important for me to fix everything before we head to the oversea races with next week. Iíve set high goals with this switch to a completely new environment for me as I target to come back at the fierce end of the competition in the highly competitive Moto2 class which means a return to the podium soon. The reasons are first to look forward to a new motivation and also very important to ride a Suter bike again. Beyond that I can feel that Stefan and Jochen Kiefer, the teamí owner, believe strongly in me. At this point I would like to express my gratefulness to my current team CarXpert Interwetter for their long-time support and great years racing together. Above all I would like to express a big and cordial thank you to Mr. Oliver Metraux who was a first mentor and promotor since my first years in racing: Thank You, Iíll miss you. At least Iím happy to announce too that I succeeded to cooperate with Dr. Robert Siegrist as my manager for one further year at least. Without him it wouldnít have been possible to fix this agreement with Leopard Racing and Kiefer
It it still a great shame we won't see him again in the season.
Best of luck in 2017!

He already had a verbal agreement with his team, which he binned when Leopard offered him a place next year.
