Tyre choice still undecided for front row starter Pedrosa

Tyre choice still undecided for front row starter Pedrosa

Front row for 2007 race winner as he looks for Valencia victory repeat.

Dani Pedrosa will decide on his race tyres in Sunday´s warmup for the Gran Premio Parts Europe de la Comunitat Valenciana, having only used one set of Bridgestone rubber in the dry on Saturday.

Dani Pedrosa - Second

`Finally, it looked like we might get a dry session this afternoon. The hour started dry but then it started raining again, which spoiled the work we had planned focusing on trying different race tyres. I wanted to continue working with race tyres, preparing for the race, but we made an early switch to qualifying tyres to make sure of a good grid position for tomorrow, in case it started raining more heavily. Finally we made the front row, quite close to pole, and the front row is particularly important at this track. We were only able to try one race tyre this afternoon, so we will need a good warm-up and then we will need to think very carefully about which tyres we will run in the race. I hope we can have a dry race tomorrow, not only for us but also for all the tens of thousands of fans who always pack the grandstands here.´<7blockquote>
