Dani Pedrosa: ‘I can be world champion with Honda’

Dani Pedrosa insists he can still become MotoGP world champion at Honda. The Spaniard recently signed a one-year extension to his factory HRC contract having been linked with a big-money switch to Ducati. The 23-year-old has yet to come close to winning the premier class crown despite four years at HRC. But he remains confident his title ambitions can be fulfilled at Honda,...

I have grown to like Dani, that must be the Stoner factor.It's hard to believe he has been in the top flight for 4years and he is still only 23!

How he will fare against the rush of new blood coming into the championship next year is anyones guess. He will always win the odd race but the consistency to win the title may never be there.

It's possible

i don't think the Honda is far off the mark, Dani needs to pull it together and gain a bit of confidence,he is young enough and in a way as a slight outsider the heat is off him a little so don't discount it,that bike would still be world champion with VR on it ,it's easy to forget where the m1 was when Rossi first piloted it,he will be in the mix next year i'm sure

Hard to Believe indeed Boybilly

That's because he's actually 24! Harder to believe is that he's 5 ft 2in in stature. 4' 11"  on his tippy toes I say. Dani you've got to stop standing next to Vale, or at least get on that top box more to even things out. Yes he can win the title, but he needs to find more aggression and Honda more consistency.

Dani the Champ

I don't see it happening while Rossi, Lorenzo and Stoner are around. He's good,  no doubt about it, and the Honda is getting better. But he just doesn't have the aggression, the killer instinct to mix it up with the other guys, and so he loses out. If he can get to the corner first and put a gap between him and the others, he's all good to win that race, but if the others keep him in close and put the overtakes on him, I think he just runs out of steam far too quickly and just cant keep up. Well that's what I'm reckoning anyway!

It's Karma.

As an  Amarican I see this as karma coming back on the Honda team. Even as Hayden was winning the world title they were busy re-engineering their bike for the lilliputian Pedrobot.  Repsol made it clear that they wanted a Spanish GP champ and honda tried to oblige them by giving Dani top billing despite him having finished second to Hayden.  Now they find themselves behind both Yamaha and Ducati with one of their factory riders fighting for his championship position against a privateer rider.              Pedrosa just doesn't have the mettle to fight it out with Stoner, Rossi and Lorenzo. It is somehow always the bikes fault. Funny, I distincly remember him setting a fastest lap a few races ago while running a distant third towards the end of the race. That sounds more like and inconsistant rider. Amazing how the bike must be miraculously working fine when he wins.

Wrong wrong wrong!

Again as i just said in my last post about Doohan talking. All he ever does is blame the bike there he is again saying that Honda need to build a winning bike and he know's they can do it, Well the only way they will do this is when they have a descent enougth rider who knows how to give them usefull information on what needs changing and what direction to go in and blatently he hasn't a clue. It really annoys me that someone can be in his position as the main factory rider and he's standing there blaming the bike. Hasn't he learnt anything from watching Rossi go from Honda To Yamaha which lets face it was no where near a good enough bike to win a race let alone a championship or even 4! He needs to get his head round development first and stop blaming Honda and take it like a man, well a little man!

I couldn't agree with you more, and I couldn't have said it better myself. It just goes to show what knd of person he is looking at the way  he treated the world champion of 2006, Nicky Hayden
