Pedrosa´s describes race as difficult but important

Repsol Honda´s Dani Pedrosa came home eighth at The Brickyard on Sunday afternoon.

Riding his first race with Bridgestone tyres, Dani Pedrosa had an extremely challenging race at the Red Bull Indianapolis Grand Prix. The Spaniard finished eighth, a result that he feels he could not have bettered under the circumstances.

Dani Pedrosa - Eighth

`That was a very tough race. I started quite cautiously and then I began to push harder, but in the mid-stages I wasn´t fast enough and I lost some time. Towards the end I found a good pace. Four or five laps before Race Direction stopped the race, the wind got really strong and there was a lot of dirt and debris getting blown on to the track. Indy and the Race Direction did a good job getting the track ready before the race. Finishing eighth is not a good result for me, but considering the conditions I couldn´t do any better. All in all, it has been an important weekend for us. We have gained a lot of experience in both wet and dry conditions which will help in the future, so we will keep working hard. The tyres worked well today and I´m feeling confident for the next race at Motegi in two weeks time.´
