Pedrosa looking to add victory to previous good results at Sepang
Almost without time to celebrate the 2011 World Champion title, Casey Stoner and his team mates of the Repsol Honda Team, Dani Pedrosa and Andrea Dovizioso, will face this weekend the second-to-last round of the calendar, the Malaysian Grand Prix, where Pedrosa and Dovizioso will fight for the third place in the overall standings.
Dani Pedrosa, who did not take part in the Malaysian race in 2010 due to an injury, will try to recover from the weekend he had in Phillip Island, where he was fourth and lost 3 points to Andrea Dovizioso, third in the Championship. The Italian rider of the Repsol Honda Team was in Phillip Island again on the podium. With this third place, Andrea is just one point away from match his best MotoGP season. The Sepang circuit, the second longest of the World Championship with 5.548 metres, is a pending subject for the Italian rider, who saw the win escape from his hands last year.
Dani Pedrosa: “We now have a couple of days to rest and recover from the race in Australia and I’m looking forward to arriving in Malaysia. Sepang is a circuit I like and where we have had good results in the past. I won in 125cc and 250cc, but not yet in MotoGP and this is a very good motivation for me. The winter test in Sepang was good and we have some interesting data to start working with. I really want to do two very good races and finish the season the best way possible”.
