MotoGP: HRC and Dani Pedrosa to end 18yr partnership at the end of 2018

MotoGP: HRC and Dani Pedrosa to end 18yr partnership at the end of 2018

After 18 years together across three classes in the MotoGP World Championship, HRC and Dani Pedrosa have announced that their longstanding partnership will come to an end at the end of the 2018 season, by mutual agreement. The two have enjoyed an incredibly successful relationship and since 2006, when the Spaniard joined the Repsol Honda Team, he has earned 31 victories and was runner-up in the MotoGP Championship on three occasions – becoming the rider with the third most podiums in the premier class, behind only Valentino Rossi and Giacomo Agostini.

Over the years, Pedrosa has provided very useful information and feedback to Honda for the development of its machines, and at the same time, HRC has given him the best technology and full support on the track.

“I want to thank HRC for all these years of great success,” says Pedrosa. “I have grown not only as a rider but also as a person with them. I will always have HRC in my memories and in my heart. In life we all need new challenges and I feel it’s time for a change. Thanks, HRC.”

“Today is a sad day for me,” adds Yoshishige Nomura, HRC President. “On behalf of HRC, I want to thank Dani for all his hard and successful work, and to express our gratitude for these two decades together. We also wish him the very best of luck and success. Thanks, Dani.”

McLaren's mischievous duo, introducing Carlos Sainz and Lando Norris 🤗 ... See Less

I wish more teams had drivers with chemistry like these two.

I’ve started watching F1 for the first time last summer after many SBK years and I’m already obsessed with this duo ❤️ Both did a very good job since the first race I’ve seen them performing

A experienced Spanish with a British rookie. That's happened to McLaren in 2008 and 2019. And look at the difference of situation. I love this duo!

Hurry up, March! I miss racing. Best teammates ever! Love them! ♡

Must be great for a team that has often had acrimonious driver pairing in the past. I really enjoy watching them. Bought the fun back into the sport. Well done to both of them.

best duo ever ! love them !

Hopefully it should come together for the team, they need a good season

You posted this exact same video before, don't become repetitive now

Best duo ever, love them ! 🥛

Love these boys!!!

Gonna win this year!

BINOTTO DIMETTITI IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII

Nicu 🤣

The miserable Red Bull drivers could learn a lot from these two

This incoming season would be critical for these 2 drivers. As you know, teams might open new doors for them especially Sainz who is really looking consistent every race.

Merci !

Felicitaciones Muy Lindas Fotos

Stunning photos, not many spectators though in the dessert, more camels than people and that's what makes The Dakar, crowds cheering them on !!!!

Hermosas imágenes. Muchas gracias por compartirlas con los amantes del Dakar

Eurosport put snooker in the last two days of Rally coverage slots so I missed them, really annoyed.

Beautiful photos. Thanks for sharing.

Trop belle les photo

👌 Alexandra Hircyi 😉
