I thought he had retired on his own terms? Did Honda sack him?

Apparently he is going to announce what he's up too this weekend. I read it somewhere, but for the life of me can't remember where, (it wasn't on a toilet wall or anything, it was a reputable outlet).

No announcement from Pedrosa, appears he was going to retire and something has come to put off the decision.
Or maybe the other way around.

His announcement is basically that there is no announcement this weekend.
Very much sounds like it isn't retirement, he has options but won't say what series never mind team.
I reckon if he was going to retire he would have just said that.

According to what the usual birdies told me, Pedrosa's options would seem to be either a 2 year contract for the [non-existing-yet] Yamaha Petronas team or a contract as a KTM tester that would include 2 or 3 wild cards per year. Mike Leitner, who is currently one of the KTM managers, has been Pedrosa's crew chief for 9 years and that would be why he is wanted as a tester at KTM.

Is this not a bit weird?! Who made him have a press conference? A whole thing with media for him to say "I have no news" is a bit odd...

Jorge got his HRC seat, it’d be a shame if he retires just because there are no available rides out there. But now I think he does have something in the works especially after the “no news” press conference.
