It hasn't been an easy decision for Thomas, but I respect it because I know it's well thought through, ... Thomas has always delivered a solid effort for the team, at the same time as he's won some races on his own. I hope he's learnt something valuable to take with him in his future ventures. On behalf of the team I would also like to wish him the best of luck for the future.
Since he joined us his career has blossomed like I've never seen before.
Ivan, ... is a professional, always.
He's an all-round rider, who can achieve results throughout the enitre season and at the same time has the ability to inspire and help develop the other riders.
