Pedrosa øverst på pallen på Indianpolis

Del:

American Grand Prix på Indianpolis ble kjørt denne helgen og Pedrosa ble den beste. Dani Pedrosa har så langt tatt tre førsteplasser og ikke umulig blir det flere.Av: Mona Forsnes

Dette var også hjemmebane for Ben Spies som gjorde tok en flott andreplass. Lorenzo kom inn på tredje mens Rossi havnet utenfor pallen denne gangen.

Pedrosa forteller at han er fornøyd med sin egen innsats:

I’m really happy with this win and it was an especially tough one because of the heat today. I didn’t make the perfect start but I was quite quick through the first few tight corners and stayed close to the leaders.
My rhythm was good today and even though Spies was strong in front I was able to close him down and make the pass. I’m really pleased with the performance of my bike because it was fast on the straights and also was working well in the corners.
When I was out in front it was quite hard to stay focused and at the end of the race I was really tired – but I’m very happy because last year I crashed when I could have won and now I have made up for it. There were many crashes this weekend and it would have been easy to make a mistake in the race – you only need to go a little off line and you can be on the ground immediately, especially towards the end of the race when the tyres are worn.
I’ve gone past the barrier of two MotoGP race wins in a season so I’m very happy. We are doing a good job and I hope we can maintain this momentum next weekend at Misano. I want to thank the team and all the people around me.»
