Pedrosa sets sights on German GP win

In the week it was confirmed Casey Stoner will join Honda in 2011, Dani Pedrosa will look to stamp his auhtority on a ride alongside him, starting with Germany.
Dani Pedrosa says he wants to keep 'moving forward' following his second place finish on home soil in Spain, claiming he wants to eradicate the mistakes and fight for victory in Germany.

Pedrosa scuppered his chances of challenging Jorge Lorenzo in Barcelona after running off the track at the first corner, the Spaniard nonetheless recovering to finish in second position after prevailing in a battle with Casey Stoner.

Two years after injuring himself in a fall whilst leading at the Sachsenring, Pedrosa is hopeful he can make amends and 'fight for the win' on the Repsol Honda this year.

“It's been nice to have some rest after three races in a row, but I'm already looking forward to facing the last two races before the summer break,” he said. “The race at Catalunya was very positive for us, for me personally because I was able to give my friends and fans a good result, and for my team because they worked very hard again and we ended up with a second place - another podium after the one we got in Assen.

“I want to maintain this momentum and keep moving forward, and fight for the victory in the two next races. In addition, the three races on consecutive weekends we've just had helped me to achieve a very good physical condition and I feel really confident now.

“Sachsenring is a circuit where I enjoy racing and we've normally had a good performance there; even in 2008 when I crashed I was leading the race with a good gap, so it makes me feel that we can do well again this weekend. I want to be totally concentrated on not making any mistakes and be to ready to fight for the win.

“Finally, I want to congratulate the Spanish national football team for winning the World Cup. I watched the match on TV and it was very emotional!”
