Colin Edwards - Indy Q&A: Part 2.
OK. I have one last question, if I may, to come back to tyres. I'm sure you're going to get extremely bored with all the questions about tyres. Dani Pedrosa has got the Bridgestones. I don't know if you saw his times from Monday, they were reasonably impressive.
What did he do?
34.6 on a race tyre apparently.
That's pretty good.
Yeah, that was pretty good. That was on the air-valve engine, as well. Do you think or do you expect Pedrosa to be able to, you know, make an impact? Do you think he's going to have a big impact or will the impact mostly be in his mind rather than on the tyres?
No, you know, I don't think it's going to be in his mind, to be honest. I think Dani is probably one of the strongest riders out there as far as mental capacity. He doesn't really need to play the mind game, very hard to play mind games with him. He's very determined, very strong willed. I don't think that really has an influence whatsoever. I think the tyre situation, obviously now after Misano, the times that he's done, he's brewing with confidence and ready to come out and show. After the debacle that's been going on, he's ready to come out and show everybody what he's got and he's ready to come out and show Michelin what they don't have, maybe.
One last question I wanted to ask you. There was a point early on this year we were all very nervous about your contract Herve Poncharal and everybody at Tech 3, we were most thrilled to hear that you had signed on again for next year. Would you consider going back again to World Superbikes if at any time you had enough of MotoGP?
That's a good question. You know, I don't know. I'm not there yet and I just don't know. I've got kids in school now, I'm missing that. I don't know, that's just something I'd have to weigh talking to my wife about and come up with a family plan. I think if I was to be home 24/7, she would probably hate me. But every time I come home, we fall in love again. So whatever I do in the future, I definitely have to come up to something where I'm in and out of the house weekly or once a month. I don't know, we'll see. You know, if I'm still feeling good and still riding good, then it's always a possibility.
