Hofmann loses his ride with d'Antin!
Following the Portuguese GP
Alex Hofmann has been released from his contract with the Pramac d'Antin Ducati Team on Sunday night and will therefore not contest the last four races of the season.

The decision came after the German rider pulled out of the Portugese
GP with 17 laps remaining, stating he didn't have enough motivation to fight for the last positions.

“Today was not my day. First, I had a problem with my A bike while I was going to the starting grid, so I had to come back into the pits and change to my B bike. After the race started and I saw I was six seconds back from the last person, I couldn't find the motivation to continue fighting only to remain last. I'm very sorry for reacting this way”, explained Hofmann.

Team boss Luis d'Antin was obviously far from impressed with his rider.

“I think that lack of motivation is not an excuse for us, and therefore the Team reserves the right to make a decision on whether or not he will continue racing with us for the remainder of the season”, said the Spaniard after the race.

Later in the evening, the Team decided to get rid of Hofmann.

The press release stated “After the Grand Prix of Portugal, during which Alex Hofmann entered the pit boxes with 17 laps remaining, and said, ‘I don't have the motivation to fight for the last positions', the Team management of Pramac d'Antin have decided to release Hofmann from his contractual obligations for the remainder of the 2007 MotoGP season.

The last four races in the MotoGP World Championship will see a substitute rider in place of Hofmann, who will be named within a few days.”

Chaz Davies and Ivan Silva, who both rode one race for the Pramac d'Antin Ducati team earlier in the season - in replacement of the injured Hofmann - are on top of the list.
