Pedrosa: "I hope Valentino will return the favour!"

Just knocked off the front row, the Spaniard starts from P4 at COTA

Dani Pedrosa (Repsol Honda Team) heads up the second row for the Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas, remaining a presence in the top echelons of the timesheets following qualifying. Pedrosa has been on the podium twice at the track, and is looking to sort out some little issues to make it a third as he looks ahead to Sunday.

With the fight for the podium looking tight between the top five, the 'Baby Samurai' hopes the man who knocked him off the front row will return the favour on Sunday...

Dani Pedrosa, P4: "Fourth isn’t so bad. I could’ve been third but it’s okay, let’s hope tomorrow Valentino will return the favour! The day was demanding because of the weather conditions—quite a bit cooler than yesterday—and of the track in general. There were many crashes, so this morning we stayed very calm. In the afternoon we definitely improved our pace and only in the end we suffered a small crash (in turn 1), luckily with no consequences. In qualifying we gave our maximum but we suffered some chatter on the front and I couldn’t improve much. We’ll try to sort out some more little things before tomorrow and give our best in the race."
