Motociclismo: ‘Leitner says motivated Pedrosa can win title’

Dani Pedrosa will be able to challenge for a first MotoGP™ title in 2014, providing the Spaniard is motivated enough. That is the view of Crew Chief Mike Leitner, who expressed the opinion during an interview with Spain’s Motociclismo.

"That was the best phase in Dani’s sporting career so far," Austrian Leitner says of the second half of the 2012 season, when Pedrosa won seven of the last 11 races, before going on to discuss 2013.

"Until the Sachsenring Dani was leading the World Championship, then everything fell apart with his crash. Dani is certainly not demotivated. At this level, when we talk about those top three, you have to make sure your motivation remains in tact. If Dani can do that, he can fight for the world title – absolutely no doubt about it."
