Pedrosa looking for a hat-trick

250cc World Champion Dani Pedrosa arrives at his home Grand Prix looking for a hat-trick of consecutive victories and an extension of his lead at the top of the quarter-litre standings, which now stands at 21 points over Andrea Dovizioso.

Pedrosa's victory in Italy was the 18th time he has stood on the top step of a Grand Prix podium, making him the most successful teenager of all time and surpassing the 17 wins achieved by Valentino Rossi.

Whilst Dovizioso and Casey Stoner, who lies just a point behind the Italian in third place, will be looking to put the brakes on the Spaniard this weekend, his main threat could come from Honda colleague Jorge Lorenzo. Pedrosa's teenage compatriot finished second at Mugello to become the second youngest ever podium finisher in the 250cc class after starting from pole position.
