Ben spies retires from racing

Just saw from my buddy in New Zealand who is bens personal assistant that bens done.

Ben Spies:

I had such high hopes for racing for Ducati and Ducati has been incredibly supportive of me during this challenging year, so I am tremendously disappointed that I have not been able to fulfill my personal goals and team goals with Ducati. I want to thank everyone from racing organizations, factories, teams and all my fans for helping me and supporting me throughout my career. I never dreamed that I would reach the level of success that I have over the past 20 years of racing, but the time has come to stop and I do so with great sadness.

To be clear, is he retiring from racing entirely or simply dropping out if his contract with Pramac/Ducati?
