Dani Pedrosa made strong progress with his Repsol Honda during FP2 at Indianapolis, but the Spanish star isn't a fan of the new layout at the American track.

Pedrosa, only 16th in FP1, shaved a massive three seconds off his time to elevate himself to fifth in the afternoon with a lap of 1m 33.493s.

However, the Honda rider doesn't agree with team-mate Marc Marquez, who feels the new layout is 'more fun'.

"I don't like this new layout as much; it seems less fun compared to the previous one, because we have three fewer places in which to overtake," said Pedrosa.

"We were able to progress a lot in the afternoon and tried out all the tyres, but we still need to work to see what the pace will be like and find the limits of the track.

"Today the track condition improved the more laps we all put in, because the asphalt cleaned up and gave us much more grip," he added.

"Tomorrow we will work on finding the limits and getting a good tyre combination for Sunday's race."

Pedrosa added that there is plenty more time to come from the circuit: "I think the changes in the course will make it about eight seconds faster. We have to adapt to this, getting the gearbox ready, and also the tyres."
