Repsol Honda rider Dani Pedrosa is in the best possible condition ahead of the second MotoGP pre-season practice of 2011, which will be held at the Sepang Circuit in Malaysia from Feb. 26-27.

Pedrosa, the runner-up in the 2010 MotoGP World Championship, continues his recovery from the motorcycle crash and injury he suffered in the Japanese Grand Prix; the Spaniard sustained a double fracture to the left collarbone.

Although the motorcycle rider was flown home and operated on in the USP Dexeus clinic in Barcelona, the heavy contusion and swelling had caused a numbness and lack of strength in Dani Pedrosa’s left arm while riding his Honda.

To no avail, the Honda RC212V rider started the first practice of the year in Malaysia strong. Dani Pedrosa turned the fasted lap on the second full day of testing with a time of 2 minutes, 0 seconds and 770 thousandths on his old race bike, that was 1 second and a half faster than the pole set by Jorge Lorenzo last October.

The MotoGP time set by Dani Pedrosa on his fourth lap was the fastest ever at this circuit on a motorcycle but was later bested by another Honda rider, the sophomore Italian racer Marco Simoncelli.

Dani Pedrosa (Honda RC212V MotoGP Bike) say: "I don’t think we have ever been so fast on this circuit, but you just find yourself a bit fresher in the morning and I put in four very good laps. I was not after a fast time but I saw that the track surface was good and I went for it."
