Dani Pedrosa talks qualifying results Laguna Seca

Qualifying on the second row of the grid for the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix, Dani Pedrosa is looking to make some small improvements to challenge the front line starters. The Repsol Honda rider is targetting a three-tenths of a second drop on his practice times in order to find the ideal race pace on Sunday.

4th – Dani Pedrosa Speaks…

"We started this afternoon’s session really well and were able to lap consistently quickly straight away. Towards the end it became a little bit more difficult to improve the lap times because they tyres weren’t quite getting up to temperature and it was easy to make a mistake – we saw a few crashes out there later in the session. Fourth on the grid is not bad – I would have liked to be on the front row of course but fourth is ok. For tomorrow I’d like to improve our race pace by about three tenths per lap and that’s what we’ll work on in the warm-up. We did a lot of laps today on the tyres we’re planning to race on and this was one of our targets this weekend so I’m satisfied with that. It’s a short lap here and there isn’t any chance to rest which is going to make it a tough race tomorrow. You have to stay very focused and concentrated because it’s easy to make a mistake. In the sessions today I was mostly riding on a clear track, so I’m confident that if I can get away with the front group then this will help my rhythm and pace even more."
