Pedrosa to reveal MotoGP future @ Sachsenring

I say it sounds like retirement
Quote:
"Therefore, at the Sachsenring I will hold a press conference to announce it. I hope that my decision to wait until then to make it public will be respected."

Would be hilarious if he announces a second time that he has nothing to announce.

The only way he is staying in MotoGP is if between now and his announcement, they announce the rumored Petronas-Yamaha team. They aren't going to let Pedrosa make an announcement that he is going to ride before they've even announced the team officially. This is retirement, and probably long overdue since he has looked progressively worse every season since Casey Stoner retired. Never as a Pedrosa fan. Blindingly fast on his day, but I look at riders like that as being one dimensional in that they need everything to come together perfectly for them to win a grand prix. Denying Zarco at Valencia last year is likely to be as fitting a final victory for him as you could pick. Unless he somehow figures out a way to win a race between Sachsenring and Valencia. His showing at the Dutch TT was ghastly, and that probably has a lot to do with it. He can't come to terms with the Michelin tires at all, and I don't think jumping on a Yamaha would solve that problem. Him riding a Yamaha is more of a nice fantasy idea but you still have to turn the tires on, and he may finally be realizing he can't actually do that.

I like Dani and I really want this whole Petronas team to happen because, even if it's for one season, I'd love to see what he can do on another good bike.
Having said that, he needs to pull his finger out because not only is this suspense doing my nut in, it is clearly messing with his racing too.

New rumor is Pedrosa and the SIC team could not come to terms on money and he will retire, with Quartararo teaming with Morbidelli for 19 . Supposedly Quartararo’s stock has skyrocketed with his form of late and the fact that he is doing it on the Speed Up is impressing everyone in the paddock.

Article on crash suggesting the sticking point for Pedro is whether or not he gets a 2019 M1.

Wonder if rossi has vetoed it?

Fuck that is a loose assumption.
