Repsol Honda rider Dani Pedrosa, convinced that the Sachsenring circuit can help to achieve a good point in the race this weekend. He felt had a better chance than previous results in Italy, when he finished eighth.
The Spanish rider is performing poorly in Mugello, which became the first post-break race six weeks for recovery of a broken collarbone injury to the right, following the incident with the Gresini Honda rider Marco Simoncelli. He had to settle for finishing in that order (eight), which is the worst during the 2011 season.
Pedrosa was not fully recovered. However, he still has confidence high, especially ahead of the race at the Sachsenring. There is a reason that makes Pedrosa optimistic because the circuits are more twists to the left, which of course helps relieve it of the injury.
"Contrast with at Mugello, Germany almost all of them have turn to the left and this certainly helped me," said Pedrosa.
"The result at Mugello was satisfactory because after so long not racing, I have not lost the ability to stimulate the motor quickly. I have to restore fitness and this week I've worked hard."
Pedrosa is waiting for the race at Sachsenring because he's got good memories here. The reason, in 2007, Pedrosa became the winner and the best results is the number one podium finish in 2010.
"I always achieve a good result at Sachsenring and very good to be back competing on the track that you know can do well," said Pedrosa.
"Last year, we achieved a good result there and hope to do a good job for another practice session, and hope there are no unexpected events and emerging opportunities to win this race."
Despite suffering from injury and was forced to miss the three series, Pedrosa still has a chance to catch the rider in front of him. Now she was in seventh position standings, just five points adrift of the Yamaha rider, Ben Spies.
