Information gathering most important for timesheet-topper Pedrosa

Information gathering most important for timesheet-topper Pedrosa

The fastest rider of the week in the final test of 2007, Dani Pedrosa concluded his year at Jerez in a positive fashion.

The fastest rider of the week in the final test of 2007, Dani Pedrosa concluded his year at Jerez in a positive fashion. The Spaniard managed to better his pole position time from earlier in the year onboard the latest version of the Honda RC212V, clocking a quickest lap of 1'38.562.

Despite this, the Repsol Honda rider was not overwhelmed by the improvements undertaken by the Japanese factory in the break between his two rides on the machine at Valencia and Jerez. The 22 year-old explained that he had focused more on rigorous examination than anything else, aiming to provide as much data as possible for Honda's perusal.

"Since Valencia the bike has improved a little but not so much, and I'm trying not to miss any aspect of improvement," he explained. "I'm trying to give best information possible for the engineers, who will be working on the bike over the winter. We now go into a long break, and I hope that during this time we can develop the machine in a good way."

Pedrosa, like the rest of the MotoGP field, will not have another chance to test until January 22nd, when he is pencilled in to ride at the Sepang circuit.
