With his retirement decision now official, Dani Pedrosa's main focus is a return to competitiveness during his final ten MotoGP races for Repsol Honda.

Pedrosa has taken at least one MotoGP win per season since his 2006 debut, with a total of 31 victories.

Yet his best finish from the opening nine rounds of this year is only fifth place and the Spaniard says he needs an improvement in cornering to aid his challenge.

 “We’ve had a few days off, not a real summer break but good nevertheless. Now we go to Brno, which is one of my favourite tracks on the calendar, so we hope to be a little faster there," Pedrosa said.

"In order to do that, we must improve the feeling and setup of the bike, because so far we’ve been facing some problems everywhere. We mainly need to improve in cornering, because at the moment I can’t turn the bike fast enough, especially mid-corner and out of the corners.”

Pedrosa has claimed two memorable MotoGP victories at Brno, beating Jorge Lorenzo by 0.178s in 2012 and ending team-mate Marc Marquez's run of 10 wins in a row in 2014. Pedrosa was runner-up to Marquez in last year's wet-dry race. Both had a day of private testing at Brno earlier this month.
