Pedrosa: "I was under a lot of pressure from Valentino"

Pedrosa: 'I was under a lot of pressure from Valentino'

Pedrosa battled until the midway mark with Lorenzo and Rossi, eventually moving back into second and holding his position until the end.

After Pedrosa made his move with 13 laps to go to claim second place, he upped his pace to give Rossi no chance.

Pedrosa: "I’m so happy – above all with how we finished the race as I rode very strongly. I was under a lot of pressure from Valentino and, although it had been a while since I had last fought with him and he is very difficult to beat, I gave my all and was able to finish ahead of him. I rode much better at the end and it is the first race this season in which I kept up a good pace until the finish. It’s true that here the bike had less of a handicap than at other tracks, due to the type of circuit it is, but at test next week we have to work hard -because the both Jorge and Valentino were much closer today than in other years here. We’ll see if we can find something for the second half of the season to make us more competitive."
