2013 MotoGP: Repsol Honda Riders Optimistic for the Second Half of the Season
Pedrosa believes that the next three rounds could b decisive as to which way the current championship goes. Indianapolis, Brno and Silverstone are extremely important the Spaniard says, because all riders will be well rested after the summer break and looking to make the best possible out of their physical training.
Having raced at Laguna Seca injured an subsequentially being diagnosed with a full collarbone fracture, Pedrosa adds that the past three weeks of recovery have been extremely good and he's feeling well and ready to race.
On the other hand, his team mate Marc Marquez begins to feel the pressure of being in the leading position in the championship. Probably less stress than Dani Pedrosa or the reigning champion Jorge Lorenzo, as their experience allows them to be much cooler and calculated, but definitely not taking things to easily.
The Honda rookie also mentions Casey Stoner test riding the MotoGP machinery in Japan and believes the feedback the Australian rider provides to the Honda tech staff is crucial for developing a better bike for 2014, while helping improve the 2013 prototype, as well.
MotoGP racing resumes this weekend at Indianapolis, with all the riders in top shape and Ben Spies back aboard his Ducati.
