Pedrosa hoping to score first victory of the season at Sachsenring
The MotoGP World Championship has reached a gruelling stage of the 2012 season, with three races in as many weekends on the agenda for the riders. The next race on the agenda is the German Grand Prix, which takes place this weekend.
The Sachsenring plays host to round eight, and was the scene of Repsol wins in two categories last year. Dani Pedrosa took victory in MotoGP and Marc Márquez did likewise in Moto2. Whilst Pedrosa is yet to win a race so far this season, he has come close and has the form of three second places and three thirds to boost his confidence. Casey Stoner will start the weekend less sore from his crash in practice at Assen and as joint leader of the World Championship with Jorge Lorenzo.
Dani Pedrosa “Sachsenring has been a successful track for us in the past, we’ve got some very good results there and it’s a circuit where I always enjoy racing. Every race counts and we have to keep working hard and our time will come. We had a very good weekend in Assen and we have to repeat it in Germany; hopefully with the first win of 2012 that we are chasing so much. Sachsenring is a short track where the performance of the tyres will again play a big part, because you are leaning on the left a long time and the fastest corner is to the right. We need to set up the bike the best we can and give our best on Sunday”.
