Pedrosa targets Misano win repeat

Dani Pedrosa is looking to repeat his San Marino Grand Prix victory from 2010 as the MotoGP World Championship moves straight on to Misano.
Dani Pedrosa feels he is in a good position to challenge for victory in the San Marino Grand Prix at Misano after scoring a strong podium finish during the Indianapolis Grand Prix.

The Spaniard moved back up to fourth position in the overall standings with a sixth run to the podium this season, Pedrosa now 44 points behind Repsol Honda team-mate Andrea Dovizioso in the fight for third.

Heading to Misano, where he was a winner last season after scoring back-to-back victories, Pedrosa says a strong start to the weekend should see him capable of challenging for this year's victory.

"After the good race we had at Indy, we arrive at Misano in a very positive mood. The circuit is so different compared to Indy, but last year we had a very good race there and we will try to repeat this. We must be a little stronger on Saturday and prepare for the race the best we can.

“Misano is a track where you need good acceleration and hard braking, so this will be our priority to start working on with the bike setting. After the success in America, it's good to head directly to Misano. I hope we can continue working well with the team and take another step forward".

Why would Honda want to get rid of Dani? He is clearly either the 2nd or 3rd best rider in MotoGP. Besides Casey the only other rider that might be better than him is Jorge and he is under contract to Yamaha. Dani definitely deserves the ride.

I think Dani works well as a teamate with Casey...If not for his injury and one low slide while leading and probably would have won, he would be right with Casey in points. Not sure how much Honda is looking at marq but he looks very promising and he is Spanish. What is the Japan flag and message? and what's with the umbrella person?
