Dani Pe­drosa’s woes on the sec­ond Rep­sol Honda con­tin­ued with seem­ingly no light at the end of the tun­nel.

Once again strug­gling with the same is­sues that have plagued him all sea­son – a lack of rear grip he con­trib­utes in part to his ul­tra-light weight of only 51kg - the vastly ex­pe­ri­enced Spa­niard qual­i­fied in a lowly 12th. He even­tu­ally fin­ished the race in sev­enth po­si­tion.

“We went bet­ter in the race com­pared to the prac­tice ses­sions, as we were putting in sim­i­lar times to the rid­ers at the front. We had been a lit­tle far­ther away from them be­fore this week­end, but to­day we took a step for­ward and that’s a pos­i­tive. Now we must carry on work­ing to con­tinue our progress next week­end.”
