Pedrosa confident for home return

Dani Pedrosa is feeling positive ahead of his return to Spain and the Aragon Grand Prix at Motorland Aragon.
Dani Pedrosa is hoping his return to home soil at the Aragon Grand Prix will give him the push he needs to get back on top of the podium.

The Spaniard was forced to miss the Catalunya Grand Prix during a three-round time out through injury, but is looking forward to getting back on home soil at Motorland Aragon, where he finished second for Repsol Honda last season.

Putting a busy summer schedule behind him, Pedrosa feels he is getting back to his best now that he has had some time to fully recover.

"I have very good memories of the Grand Prix of Aragon, last year we started well and we had a good race,” he said. “I'm satisfied with our performance in the past few weeks and I feel better every day. This week I've been able to rest and recover some energy and now I'm really looking forward to this race.

People from all around Spain attend the Aragon GP and the atmosphere there is incredible. The circuit is spectacular and very technical, it combines fast and slow corners, some of them complicated and blind where you need to find points of reference outside the track. We need to set up the bike very well for this track and make the most of all the practice sessions.

“The data we have from last year can help us on this and it will be important to start in a good direction but we cannot relax. I'm excited to see the Spanish fans again after missing the Catalunya race and I hope the home support will give me an extra boost so that we can enjoy this race together.”

What rubbish! Former world champion, one of the youngest ever winners of both a GP and world championship, and has won GP's every year since his debut in 2006- that was 2 wins on the 990 in his first year!!! He's finished 2nd twice and 3rd twice at the end of the season, and has suffered plenty of bad luck out of his control- including his throttle sticking open last year. Stoner would've flipped but Dani took it on the chin. The guy is super talented and does not deserve the flack people on this forum give him. He is a class act truly deserving of his 'alien' status.

Really hope you win this round but it will be a tall order considering Stoner's performance last year. Still second place is good enough for Repsol Honda providing that Lorenzo doesn't win
