"I simply felt that I couldn't move forward with the bike. My performances weren't what I, or the team, hoped they'd be, which I think everyone could see. The bike simply didn't suit my way of riding, it's as simple as that. Like I said the team worked hard to give me what I wanted but in the end I felt it was best that I walked away. I'd like to wish BMW all the very best for the rest of this season.
