"What led me to this decision is above all the intensity with which I've lived racing all my life," he added.

"Now it's a bit different and the priorities are a bit different, and being honest with myself, I live the races at 1000% and I have to give everything that I have and right now that's a bit different.

"So being realistic I believe this is the road I have to choose."

The Honda rider, who had been linked with a move to Yamaha's new satellite team SIC Racing, admitted the possibility to continue in MotoGP had been tempting.

"Like I said in Barcelona, I had the feelings and more or less a clear idea of what would be my decision, but opportunity shows up and you never have to close the door in that way.

"So finally I considered the option and, with more time, it's always better to take these decisions with the time, with your people and family, and think about a little bit longer than that.

"But finally... the feeling is the feeling."
