Pedrosa hoping to forget last year’s misery in Australia
There are only three rounds left before the end of the season and the Australian Grand Prix can decide the first title, that of MotoGP. Casey Stoner will have his first chance to become the new king of the class. His team mates, Dani Pedrosa and Andrea Dovizioso will seek the third consecutive victory for the Repsol Honda Team to secure the third place of the overall standings.
After three consecutive second positions, Dani Pedrosa finally achieved a new victory in Motegi. The Spaniard of the Repsol Honda Team will compete again in Australia, where last year he was not able to be due to an injury. To add a fourth victory to this season’s record will be Pedrosa’s aim, as he is only one point away from the third position of the overall standings.
Dani Pedrosa: “I’m looking forward to going to Phillip Island as the circuit is very nice with many fast corners and a lot of sliding. The tyres play an important role there as the left side of the tyre gets used a lot and therefore durability is always crucial.
Last year I tried to return to racing in Australia after my collarbone operation and I realised during practice that It would be impossible for me to finish the race. It was very hard for me to accept that I was not ready to race as a result of the injury and I had to return home empty handed after a big effort. This year I would like to race in normal conditions and leave Australia with a good result”.
