Grupo Francisco Hernando pull out of MotoGP, Sete Gibernau is left without a ride
Grupo Francisco Hernando have announced their retirement from MotoGP, due to financial constraints resulting from the ongoing economic recession. As a result of this, Sete Gibernau will not race in the remaining nine races of the 2009 MotoGP season.
‘I’m surprised at this decision. The team has fought hard to push this project ahead and on a personal level I believe we’ve met our targets at each race. It’s a pity that now, when we are getting closer to getting better results which we had hoped for, we have to leave,’ says Gibernau.
Hmmm... this is definitely a bad way to start to the week. And we don't suppose Gibernau has any chance of getting another MotoGP ride this year. Or even the next. This time, we guess he's retired for good... :-(
