Rep­sol Honda man Dani Pe­drosa se­cured a strong sec­ond po­si­tion at Brno – and ad­mit­ted that he’s learn­ing from the ex­pe­ri­ence of his younger team­mate Marc Mar­quez.

Pe­drosa also con­ceded that while he be­lieves that he’s a cham­pi­onship con­tender in any con­di­tions, he’s keen to keep his con­cen­tra­tion on the de­tails and let the big­ger pic­ture take care of it­self.

He said: “Nor­mally, when it’s still a bit wet and you have to switch to slicks you must be su­per-fo­cused and su­per­com­mit­ted. This is usu­ally a strong point for Marc, as he’s al­ways very good in th­ese con­di­tions; we have to be able to keep the same con­cen­tra­tion in the fu­ture be­cause th­ese de­tails are very im­por­tant.

“We lost five points to Marc but we re­cov­ered some on our other ri­vals. I think our team was right to come and test here dur­ing the break, as it was good to have the bike set­ting, es­pe­cially at this track. We also im­proved on some lit­tle de­tails of the bike and now I feel more com­fort­able go­ing into the sec­ond part of the sea­son. Now we have to not fo­cus too much on the cham­pi­onship and just con­cen­trate and per­form well at ev­ery race.”
