Italy MotoGP: Pedrosa on back foot after ‘uncomfortable’ morning

Dani Pedrosa finds himself outside the top ten following the first day of MotoGP free practice at Mugello.
Dani Pedrosa finds himself on the back foot following the first day of practice for the MotoGP Grand Prix of Italy in Mugello after struggling in morning practice and skipping the afternoon session.

The Spaniard, who is currently second to Repsol Honda team-mate Marc Marquez in the overall MotoGP standings, struggled to get comfortable in the dry morning session, leaving him to languish down in 11th place by the chequered flag.

With intermittent rain washing out the second practice session of the day entirely, Pedrosa has left himself with ground to make up on his key rivals.

“We were only able to complete a few laps in the morning, in which I didn't feel completely comfortable. Then we were not able to ride in the afternoon as conditions were mixed and we couldn't use the slick tyres, but we were also unable to use the wets due to the track not being wet enough.

“In any case, I can't wait to continue working tomorrow to recover the ground needed and begin to ride fast”

I guess hes been officially booted out of the team then. Good luck Dani, hope you get a good ride/job some where else. Bradl might beat you in the race, but we all know how the game is really played.
