Honda need to focus on the obvious. The engine needs more power and to be reliable, unlike this year. the riders are the same and are definately up for it so the continuity is there. The only unknown is the Michelins.

What a crappy interview!! Puig has this boy programmed, for sure! It was as if the questions were entered into a computer program (BASIC, no less!) to compute the answers. How boring.... "Okay, Dani- when you give you answers, make sure you say enough words without really giving an answer. We do not want to upset either Repsol, Honda OR Michelin, now do we?? Hey, nevermind--just let ME whisper the correct answer in your ear, that will make it all safe!"

"Dani Pedrosa bares his soul as he .......e.t.c." - What? I think he sold his soul long before to Puig & the HRC machine. So 2 wins didn't mean a thing? One moment in time he says - but not the wins. So has Puig brainwashed him into they don't matter either! If he wins a championship - would that matter?. He just seems so joyless - i really can't image what fun he'll have at Christmas - perhaps he'll be unwrapping tyres from Michelin.....

It's like being a teenager just passed him by without him ever noticing. He really needs to start hanging out with people who know how to enjoy themselves, otherwise he will wake up in 20 years time and think 'Where did my life go?'. Pity really cos he's a good person at heart. :)

to be fair, pedrosa is a straight forward guy, he did give some good answers especially on the question 'great moment vs low moment', i think he really means it ... at seems like he did not really happy with the michelin ...

jesus guys - get off dani's case, he's just a boy

have any of you actually spoke to him behind the scenes ? maybe he's nervous. when you're employed by HRC there will be huge pressure. let's see any of you carry that on your shoulders.

as for waking up in 20 years wondering where it went ? he's probably been more places, seen more things and achieved greater feats than any of us here could dream of - already.

he doesn't slag people off and unlike stoner, doesn't moan, yes moan, every other sentence. next year he'll be a place higher in the championships. if he doesn't smile then, maybe i'll change my mind.

till then - have a think before you talk sh_te

Certainly his skills are not at question, he's got them. But his character? What character? He said absolutely nothing in that interview. He's the anti-Rossi.

Just for the record, I am not getting on Dani's case. It's the people around him, the ones that have programmed him. They are the ones to blame, not Poor Little Dani Pedrobot :)

Furthermore, I don't think that Dani was 'nervous' during this interview. Do not forget that he is a DOUBLE WORLD CHAMPION, and I am sure he is somewhat accustomed to answering questions w/the media. Have you ever watched him speak in a post-race press conference?? Very composed, and even well-spoken...especially when speaking in Engli****

I just don't want the kid to turn into a 'Michael Jackson' :-o bless his heart...

Rossi gets so much stick on these pages for having a large personality and then Dani gets stick for the opposite. Variety is the spice of life isn't it?

Remember the guy was probably not speaking in his native tongue and if he was it could have been translated maybe too well.

I actually think the answers were pretty good. I think we all now know what he thinks of the tyres and that he is not yet convinced about next year. He did this without actually pointing the finger. Quite skillful.
