(Reuters) – Italian rider Andrea Iannone will leave Suzuki at the end of the MotoGP season, he said on Thursday ahead of the Italian Grand Prix at Mugello.
“We’ve worked for my future and my relationship with Suzuki at the end of the season is closed,” he told the motogp.com website.
Suzuki have already confirmed Iannone’s current team mate Alex Rins until the end of 2020, with Moto2 rider Joan Mir tipped to join him in an all-Spanish line-up.
Iannone joined Suzuki at the start of the 2017 season after losing his Ducati seat to Spaniard Jorge Lorenzo.
