It has been confirmed today that Repsol Honda Team rider Dani Pedrosa will not take part in this weekend’s Malaysian Grand Prix. Pedrosa underwent surgery on Saturday to fix a titanium plate to the collarbone he broke during practice for last weekend’s Grand Prix of Japan. After the successful operation, there was a very slim chance that the Spaniard would be fit enough to make the journey from Barcelona to Malaysia and attempt to take part in this weekend’s MotoGP race.
Pedrosa will race again at Australian grand prix, October 17th. It means that the last prediction about Pedrosa was correct. So once again, Andrea Dovizioso will be a single racer for HRC. Last season, Dovizioso did not finished at Sepang. This weekend, Dovizioso will fight after some good progress result by wins on 2nd place at Motegi, Japan. Let see how HRC can survive in the middle of Ducati and Yamaha's pressure.
