Dani Pedrosa to sign new Honda deal by Mugello?

The MotoGP paddock might be awash with rumours that Valentino Rossi will be back in Honda’s official factory squad in 2013, but HRC bosses publicly at least are saying that a new deal for Dani Pedrosa is close to being signed. Rumours about a Rossi return to Repsol Honda for the first time since 2003 have been gathering momentum since reigning...

Well Nakamoto has said No Valentino Rossi in Factory team, and No to 2 Spanish Riders. You can't have two new riders in a official factory team, so my logic is have Dovizioso back, as he will know the bike pretty well, even if its the new 1000cc. The 3 years he spent is enough for him to give consistent results for HRC (top 5), and let Marquez do all the winning. It will be like what Colin Edwards was for Yamaha back when Rossi was his team mate. That said I rate Dovi and he could prosper if he is back at Honda, as he will have a clear say to the development of the bike. If not Dovi than someone else, because I cannot see the logic in keeping Pedrosa. He will win races now and than maybe... but no WC with HRC.

Nothing will happen until marquez and Rossi put pen to paper....I would like them both to be pn a factory honda but HRC will probably sign Dani and realise that he can't pull off a WC and is the best of the rest. As for Yamaha, everyone is saying that it will be hayden and rossi and pedrosa and spies and crutchlow and dovi and so on...but there are only two spots left. There just simply isnt enough decent machinery for all these good riders. We need them to take away a limit to the how many bikes a manufacturer can have, it's intersting that Ezpeleta wants to increase the size of the grid but then limits the manufacturers bikes so that there are not enough rides to go around. If Honda could run pedrosa marquez and rossi, and yamaha could run spies lorenzo and crutchlow as factory, plus tech 3 with two bike and gresini with 2 bikes, lcr with 1 bike, then it would be easier.

Your standard is too low even for this forum...

You should be ashamed for being "invited not to post" (kicked) in Motomatters.

I wonder what you will do in your sad patetical live when rossi retires...because your litte brain is in rossi orbit

Rossi & Marques at Honda

I reckon it would be fantastic to have Rossi & Marquez at Honda. I think everyone would be happy Rossi fans happy cause he gets on a competitive bike, Rossi detractors cause rossi might not do that well and they could laugh and laugh. Along they same dream pedro to works Yama. That way we can see how fast he really is. Maybe the honda hasn't been that great and dani has been riding really well. Look at Dovi he seems to be doing better on a sat Yamaha than a works Honda.

rock & a hard place!

If Dani gets another deal with Factory Honda then Honda are very stupid. how many years have we seen the little spaniard fail to win the title. the only reason Dani has had so many chances is that there hasnt been another Spanish wonder kid for Repsol "spanish company" to fill its TV adverts and bill boards in spain. now that Marquez and almost sertainly Maverick in Moto3 will step up in the coming years its gotta be adios Dani?????

back on planet earth...

This thread has gone mad...

Pedrosa is one of the top 3 motogp riders, a group which will be 2 next year when Stoner retires.  None of the other current riders could hold a candle to him on the Honda.  Of course, Marquez may leap straight to alien standard in 2013, but that still means another year of Dani is good business for HRC.

As for Rossi, the only reason for HRC to sign him is he brings advertising (the same argument applies to the factory Yamaha team, of course).  Never in a million years is he going to beat Dani over a season - he just ain't fast enough anymore.

All of this also forgets the historical fact that Rossi won't move to a team with an alien in it.  He gets beaten by Hayden (and Barbera...) every other week - Dani will thump him!

dani aint thumping anyone

dani will thump flossi, i dont think so ,hes had years to try and do that,and all that happened was flossi scraped him off his boot every week,its a funny situation,,pedrosa will never win a title,but hes always in or around the podium weekly its hard to know where he should fit in, as honda team leader  it is silly,hes been that for years and could win no titles,along comes stoner and bang there is your title mr honda,and maybe another one yet. so what sense is it that pedro should lead the honda challenge? for another non deliverence,.honda aint that dumb thats why they hired stoner,are they are hiding something,or have they gave up already

erm ...Dovi is doing exactly what he was doing at Repsol Honda..getting the podiums but never quite near Stoner or Lorenzo for the win.Nothings quite changed so far, we can only hope that Dovi gets the factory ride next year so we can see if there really is a big difference between the Tech 3s and Factory Yam.

Cant understand the Dani slagging going on this forum. Given 2012 form so far, Dani is the next best after Lorenzo and Stoner ( take out a dazed and confused Rossi atm). HRC know that even though he might not be able to win championships, he has A VERY GOOD chance of getting podiums. HRC will have to make-do with that until Marquez matures enough to be able to challenge Lorenzo for the title in the years to come..
