Marca: ‘Pedrosa renews with Honda’

Spanish sports newspaper Marca reports on Tuesday that an agreement has been reached between Dani Pedrosa and HRC, which would keep the former championship runner-up with Repsol Honda Team once a few last details have been slotted into place.

‘The foundations are already laid, depending on a few details which could mean the announcement is delayed for a while, but there would be no reason to break the deal,’ Marca’s Jaume Martin writes. ‘Dani rejected offers from Suzuki and Ducati. He also kept an eye on the Yamaha situation in case Jorge Lorenzo didn’t renew with them.’

Explaining that Honda continues to rate both the performances and robustness of Pedrosa, Marca also demonstrates another element that may have helped the decision. ‘There is another factor. The good relationship between the two Catalans (Pedrosa and Marquez) at HRC. Signing Lorenzo could have been seen as distraction for Marquez, even though he has said publically that this wouldn’t be a problem.’
