I have some options that are a good option, but still not so clear. So, I can not say more than this, "he said. Pedrosa's passion for racing also diminished. Of the nine races that have been going on, he has not managed to reach the podium. His best record only occupies fifth position in races in France and Catalunya. In fact, his position was ranked 12 klase - men racing while this season. The position was the worst of his career since the race in MotoGP in 2006. source
