Pedrosa positive after "super slippery" Q2

Repsol Honda rider heads the second row at the #BritishGP

Dani Pedrosa (Repsol Honda Team) has had a good weekend in the UK so far, and the rider from Sabadell further improved in Q2 despite difficult weather. With grip in cooler and wetter conditions having proved a big problem for the 3-time world champion in 2016 so far, the progress made to head up the second row - and set himself up well for what may be a dry race - is another good step forward.

Dani Pedrosa (P4): “I’m happy with today’s result because the track conditions were really difficult and super slippery; the grip wasn’t good, so the rear tyre wasn’t getting the temperature, especially in qualifying under heavy rain. Anyway, I improved my pace lap by lap, and in the end fourth on the grid is positive in view of the race. We need to start well and catch the front group to find a good rhythm. We’ll see what the weather brings us and we’ll try to get the best result possible. I would also like to congratulate Toni (Bou) for winning the title today. I know him very well, we’re friends and I’m very happy for him. You can learn a lot from him. Now it’s time to enjoy it!”
