Pedrosa, the year of truth

The year 2012 marks the seventh season of MotoGP Dani Pedrosa. He arrived in the premier class in 2006 after winning three consecutive titles (two in one in 125 and 250), the pupil is a graduate of HRC MotoGP runner-up on two occasions (2007 and 2010) but lacked the consistency needed to hoist himself up on the roof of the world . With the arrival of Casey Stoner's world championship at the first attempt on the Honda, and the interest of the house golden wing (and Repsol) for the young talent Marc Márquez, Pedrosa's career seems to have reached a crossroads.

Since his arrival at the HRC, the jockey of Sabadell has over 98 MotoGP races, scoring 15 wins and 56 podiums . His statistics speak of 2.5 per year in the premier class victories, against 6.5 of Rossi, Stoner 5.5, and 4.2 for Lorenzo . Among the 'Fantastic 4', Pedrosa, however, the pilot may have missed more games through injury (7), and often taking place in optimal physical condition.

Pilot fast but extremely fragile (perhaps, not only from the physical point of view), then Pedrosa arrives at the dawn of the new season with the obligation to demonstrate their speed along the whole of the MotoGP calendar . At year end, in fact, his contract expires (as well as those of Rossi, Stoner and Lorenzo). In the event of disappointing results, Pedrosa risk losing a competitive package and added to the ranks of the greatest drivers never to have won a world title in the premier class - the most recent, Sete Gibernau, Max Biaggi and Loris Capirossi. The interpretation will the health of the Spaniard . With prolonged physical integrity, Pedrosa could reach the serenity needed to find a continuity of results so far elusive.
