Pedrosa: “We are growing”

Pedrosa: “We are growing”

The Sepang Test ends with Dani Pedrosa down in 11th, but he’s adamant there’s more to come.

A rain hit third day of the Sepang test saw teams and riders make the most of the time they had on track, the Sepang circuit damp in the morning and suffering a mid-session shower. Repsol Honda’s Dani Pedrosa was able to get in several laps between the damp spells, able to return to the track from 4:30 Local Time till the test ended. Over the three days Pedrosa was able to run through a variety of parts and settings with particular focus on the new ‘evo’ engine and electronics, Honda aiming to improve an overly aggressive engine. Pedrosa’s best time of the day, and the test as a whole, was a 2’01.161, putting him sixth. Overall this time put Pedrosa in 11th.

Dani Pedrosa: “It's been a hard test, because we had to do a lot of work and maybe this isn't reflected in the results; they don't show the potential that is there. At the end of the day we went out on track with the best combination we have found, we tried out some tyres and we were able to improve our times a little. The good point is that, step by step, we are growing and are doing our best to be ready for the first race.”
