Pedrosa: “Let’s hope the sun comes out”

Pedrosa: “Let’s hope the sun comes out”

After a disappointing British GP, Dani Pedrosa is eager to pick himself up and return to the front in Misano.

 Rain on race day at the British GP sent the weekend of Dani Pedrosa into a spin, the Repsol Honda rider had made solid progress in the dry but was unable to come close to finding the same feeling in the wet. Only twice in 2015 has Pedrosa stood on the podium, in Barcelona and Germany, due to injuries and a difficult to handle 2015 Honda. Moments of progress have been halted by incidents such as rain at the British GP and Pedrosa is hoping for good weather in Misano in order to get his season back on track and hopefully fight for the podium.

Since joining the MotoGP™ class in 2006, Pedrosa has claimed five podiums in Misano, including a victory in 2010. The circuit holds a special place in Pedrosa’s heart and the atmosphere is always special as tens of thousands of race fans flood to the Rimini coast. Having recently undergone a resurfacing, the track itself is a great unknown for many riders, though the Repsol Honda team were fortunate enough to test at the circuit before the mid season break.

Dani Pedrosa: “Silverstone wasn’t the race I - or anyone - was expecting. I felt positive over the course of the weekend, but on Sunday - in the rain - I struggled to find a good feeling. We finished the race, which is important, but this weekend I hope to make another step forward to fight at the front. Misano is a special place and always has a great atmosphere. Let’s hope the sun comes out and we have good weather all weekend so we can start working hard from Friday. It’s a short lap but intense with many overtaking points and it's quite bumpy, so set up is key. Let’s hope that the work we did there in testing will assist us."
