Honda Racing Corporation renew with Dani Pedrosa until end of 2018
Honda Racing Corporation announced the renewal of its contract with Dani Pedrosa for an additional two years. Both parties are pleased to reach the agreement ahead of this weekend‰Ûªs Grand Prix, which will be the 30-year-old Spanish rider‰Ûªs 250th in the World Championship.

Pedrosa has been a Honda rider for his entire career, beginning with his 2001 Grand Prix debut in the then 125cc class. A 125cc and double 250cc World Champion, Pedrosa entered MotoGP with the Repsol Honda Team in 2006 and has finished title runner-up on three occasions (2007, 2010, 2012) and third an additional three times (2008, 2009, 2013).

Pedrosa heads to this weekend‰Ûªs Italian GP sitting fourth in the Rider‰Ûªs Championship.

‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm very happy to be able to announce my renewal with the Repsol Honda Team." Pedrosa said. "I‰Ûªm very grateful to Honda for the trust they‰Ûªve shown in renewing with me for an additional two years.

"I think it‰Ûªs best for me to continue with the company I was with at my very first race. I‰Ûªm happy that the negotiations have been quick, and now I can just focus on racing. I want to give 100% this weekend at the Italian GP.‰Û
