Jorge Lorenzo's team manager Daniele Romagnoli has spoken out about the reasons for his decision to quit his role at the end of the season.
Romagnoli announced last week that he will leave the Yamaha squad at the end of the year, and wants to work in more of a technician's role in the future.
"I've spoken with the team bosses, it's something that has been discussed and agreed upon. Everything is fine: we part ways in perfect harmony," Romagnoli told Motosprint. "The problem is that I'm a technician, I come from a completely different background. When Jorge arrived at Yamaha, I was asked to do a job that isn't mine: the team manager. I don't like organizing, managing, spending the day sending e-mails. I like action.
"There's no chance of staying with Yamaha because there are no technical role vacancies: the team has everything it needs. There are a lot of competent, capable people, who work well together."
Romagnoli said that he intends to remain in MotoGP next season and is actively pursuing a technical role with rival teams.
"I have contacts with several teams, so we'll see what fruits that will bare in the upcoming races," he added.
