Pedrosa hoping for more Sachsenring success

"I saw that I haven't lost the ability to go fast" - Dani Pedrosa.
Having been sidelined for a month and a half with his latest broken collarbone, Dani Pedrosa admits to being relieved by his Mugello comeback performance.

The 2010 title runner-up rode from 14th on lap four to eighth at the end of the Italian Grand Prix, setting the sixth fastest lap in the process. The Repsol Honda rider then set the sixth fastest time during 26 laps at the Monday test.

"The last race in Mugello was good because after a long time without racing, I saw that I haven't lost the ability to go fast," said Pedrosa.

Having had nearly two weeks to build further fitness since Mugello, Pedrosa now heads for one of his most successful events - the German Grand Prix at Sachsenring, this weekend.

"I have to regain fitness and this week I have worked hard. I've always had very good races at Sachsenring and it's good to get to a track where you know you can do well," said Pedrosa.

"Contrary to Mugello, Germany is all almost left hand corners and this must help me.

"Last year, we had a great race there and hopefully we can do a good job again during practices, hope nothing goes wrong and come out with a good chance for the race".

Pedrosa is seventh in the world championship, having missed three races in addition to the Le Mans non-score.

@ I know this guy has had some bad luck, but seriously he has been on a factory bike for how long now and has achieved what? "I saw that I haven't lost the ability to go fast" - Dani Pedrosa. RIGHT! Who are you comparing fast too? Posted by Oh well Let's see what he has done in the previous years standings. 5th (Rookie Year) 2nd 3rd 3rd 2nd You're right, he hasn't done a thing to warrant a factory ride. Send him to Pramac!

Dani is just going to be one of those 'close but no cigar' riders. The kid has got talent as he's proved but man does he have some bad luck.. That said, it would be nice to see him win at least one motogp championship.
