Pedrosa: “We'll see how it tomorrow goes”

Pedrosa: “We'll see how it tomorrow goes”

An impeccable end to the season continues for Dani Pedrosa as he secures his sixth front row start of the year.

Big steps forward on the second day of practice at the Gran Premio Motul de la Comunitat Valenciana helped Dani Pedrosa close the gap to the leaders and continued to improve his feeling on the bike. The Repsol Honda rider was a somewhat lacklustre sixth in FP3 and but improved to third during the FP4 session. In both practice sessions Pedrosa had an eye on race setting and tyre life as the Hondas seem to be more demanding of the tyres, especially in the hotter conditions. A drop in temperature on race day could be hugely beneficial for all the Honda riders.

Try as he might, Pedrosa was unable to get within half a second of the dominating Jorge Lorenzo (Movistar Yamaha) in Q2. A time of 1’30.516 places Pedrosa third on the grid as he aims to fight for victory in Sunday’s final race. It has been along 18 races for Pedrosa, but the recent rounds show that there is still a lot more racing to come from one of the most experienced riders in the premier class. Of all the riders on the MotoGP™ grid, Pedrosa is the most successful in Valencia with six victories throughout his GP racing career.

Dani Pedrosa: “We'll see how it tomorrow goes and hope to be in the fight for the victory. Yesterday we had some problems but today we took a step forward and are in better shape. We'll have to start the race very focused and I'm looking forward to racing at this track, in front of the home fans. I’ll push 100% because it is sure to be a hotly contested race; Marc and Jorge have a strong pace so let’s hope for a good race!"
