‘It was super interesting to be part of this project with KTM in MotoGP from the start and to be able to share my experiences with them. We did our best step by step and now it’s interesting to get back into the race because you have a different perspective than a normal test. My focus in the GP is on testing the things we have on the motorcycle in a racing situation, ”said Pedrosa in a statement and later explained what his goals are:

– I want to understand the requests pilots made for different meetings and see some technical parts. When I watch it from home I can feel the improvements in bikes and racing, but now to learn more about MotoGP, new technology and how to strategize against opponents, we’re going to create this wildcard. It’s hard to talk about my expectations after not being in competition for so long. Maybe everything fits a racing mentality, or maybe not, but let’s try to enjoy the weekend as much as possible.
