Pedrosa Blog: Work, work, work

In his latest blog Dani Pedrosa addresses the issues that affected him in Qatar.

Hello everyone,

After the first race, the analysis is definitely what I was expecting. There’s a wide range in performance levels given the new set-up in the championship, and the podium was claimed by three different brands and three different styles.

Personally, I’m a little happier than I was in the pre-season because I felt better. I still was far off from the leading riders, and my goal now is to work back to the riding at top pace. A year ago, at this same Grand Prix, I didn’t feel very good physically. Now, I’m happy because I can say that I am physically better. I will keep training this week to get to the next two races in good shape.

Obviously, it’s not the start to a championship that I was hoping for, but I can only be positive considering how everything went in the pre-season. During the Grand Prix, I understood a lot more about the new bike than I did during the pre-season. Also, being alongside my rivals on the track made it easier to gain a better understating of our weakest points.

We’re going to work on a few ideas to prepare for the coming races by focusing on getting back to the highest level.

Here’s a somewhat different photo that was taken during the filming of a few clips with Dorna as it’s usually done at the start of the season.

The news from Sunday morning was the scare involving Fernando Alonso. I’m glad that it was only that and nothing serious. When we saw the condition of the car and then saw him walk away, it was a relief but also a surprise. Keep at it!

After the Grand Prix, I flew directly to Geneva with my physical therapist to start recovering quickly. But the news from Brussels today has left us at a loss for words.

All the best to everybody,
