MotoGP Czech Republic: Pedrosa upbeat on Brno prospects

'Of course Brno has some long straights that can be demanding for us, but it's a track that I've liked since I started racing, and I always have a good feeling there' - Dani Pedrosa.
Repsol Honda's Dani Pedrosa is eagerly looking ahead to the second half of the MotoGP World Championship season, which he feels will present more opportunities to challenge for the rostrum on the RCV.

Brno in the Czech Republic has been a happy hunting ground for the 30-year-old in the past and Pedrosa is hoping for settled weather this weekend to allow him to build his confidence following a fast fifth-gear fall during practice in Austria.

Pedrosa, currently fourth in the championship standings, won in Brno in 2012 and again in 2014 following a memorable battle with Jorge Lorenzo and the Honda star expects to have a good feeling with the factory RCV this weekend at a circuit he favours.

“In this second part of the season, we should find some more suitable tracks for us. Of course Brno has some long straights that can be demanding for us, but it's a track that I've liked since I started racing, and I always have a good feeling there,” said Pedrosa.

“It's very wide, with some very fast corners, and you must be able to hit the best lines to set good lap times, as it doesn't forgive the smallest mistake.

“I just hope that the weather is stable so we can use all the practice time and try to build up some more confidence and speed.”

Pedrosa has been on the podium 10 times throughout his career, also taking wins in the 125cc and 250cc classes in 2003 and 2005 respectively.

It seems like Dani has found something at the Austrian GP considering that his race pace was pretty similar to the one displayed by Marc. But it will be difficult to reach the podium considering that Ducati will be in good shape at Brno, too. Go Dani!
