Home favourite Pedrosa hoping for dry session

Dani Pedrosa looks to the skies in the hope of a dry session to better understand the resurfaced Valencia circuit.
Dani Pedrosa is hoping he gets at least one dry session at Valencia this weekend so he can become acquainted with the circuit's newly resurfaced asphalt.

Already firmed as the 2012 MotoGP runner-up after Jorge Lorenzo secured the world title in Australia, Repsol Honda's Pedrosa is now looking to end his season in style in front of his home fans.

However, though he was pleased with his pace in the wet FP1 session, particularly if the race turns out to be rain-affected, Pedrosa admits he would like some dry running to fully understand the new traits of the new tarmac.

"We didn't have so much time on track today,” he said. “We had our first experience on the new asphalt in the wet and it seems like there are still some bumps, the worst point is turn 1, but we must wait for dry conditions to be able to judge the grip level of the new surface properly.

“Today it was important to go out in the morning because the weather conditions are not clear and it's possible that we may have rain on Sunday. In the afternoon we decided not to go out, so let's hope we have at least one dry session tomorrow to better understand the changes in the circuit and work on the best setup for the race."
