Cold conditions freeze Pedrosa´s progression aspirations

Cold conditions freeze Pedrosa´s progression aspirations

Dani Pedrosa had further hand problems in the Czech Republic on Saturday, despite using further protection for the injured appendage.

Repsol Honda´s sole representative in Brno, Dani Pedrosa continued to struggle on Saturday afternoon. The rain and cold conditions present in the Czech Republic left the Spaniard down in twelfth place for Sunday´s race.

Dani Pedrosa – Twelfth

`I wore a heavier strapping on my left hand today, for better support, but anyway the cold weather gave me more pain. The track was very wet this afternoon. I tried to improve my lap time, even though the rain got heavier, but I couldn´t improve, so I will start the race from the fourth row. Of course, I´m not happy about starting from there, because it won´t help us in the race. If the race is run in the dry I hope we will have a dry warm-up so that we can work on our suspension set-up and tyre choice. If it is dry in the morning we will work hard to make improvements so we can have the best-possible race.´
