Motorcycle News (UK) - - 2016 Motorgp Silverstone Preview -

As Dani Pe­drosa’s an­nus hor­ri­bilis con­tin­ues, it’s hard to imag­ine that a change in fortune for the Rep­sol Honda rider is go­ing to ap­pear at Sil­ver­stone next week­end, a track where he’s never en­joyed con­sid­er­able suc­cess in the past.

Sim­ply un­able to make the new Miche­lin tyres work for him, com­bined with a dif­fi­cultto-ride Honda RC213V, the com­bi­na­tion of fast cor­ners and hard brak­ing at Sil­ver­stone means that’s un­likely to change come Mo­togp’s trip to the Northamp­ton­shire track.

The one great hope for Pe­drosa if he’s look­ing to re­turn to the podium for the first time since 2013 could well be rain. Show­ing de­cent pace and strong con­sis­tency in the wet while those around him have lost their cool, it could be the Spa­niard’s only chance of glory.
