Raines’ forecast: MotoGP Expert Eye predicts Pedrosa victory

Official MotoGP statistician Dr. Martin Raines expects Dani Pedrosa to take the holeshot and run to victory at the British Grand Prix on Sunday.

Although World Champion and poleman Valentino Rossi has a good record at Donington, MotoGP expert Dr. Martin Raines believes it will be Dani Pedrosa who crosses the line first at the end of Sunday’s final premier class race at Donington Park.

Raines can name any number of Donington racewinners from the history of the World Championship, but his prediction for the future shows Pedrosa as the top man for the final event at the track. His list of picks indicates Rossi and his Fiat Yamaha teammate Jorge Lorenzo in a battle for second place, with Casey Stoner and Andrea Dovizioso also in the top five. The motogp.com statistician thinks that home rider James Toseland will feature in the top ten, and says to watch out for Marco Melandri in the event of a Donington downpour…
