Dani Pedrosa has been forced to curtail his testing programme at Sepang following a recurrence of the knee injury he suffered at the Australian Grand Prix five months ago.

Pedrosa made big gains on the leaders during the second day of running in Malaysia, moving up to produce the fourth quickest lap time, just four tenths adrift of pace setter Casey Stoner.

However, the Repsol Honda rider has taken the decision to go home early after complaining that the injury to his knee, sustained when he crashed out of the Phillip Island race towards the end of last season, has flared up again.

Nonetheless, Pedrosa insists he is missing nothing more than a race simulation and, as he can only complete a handful of laps at a time, has decided it is better for him to rest instead.
“I tested everything, I have only a race simulation to do and I cannot do more than five or six laps at a time,” he told Crash.net before he made his way to the airport. “I will rest my knee now. I was on the limit coming here and thought it might be a problem.”
hope it's not going to be problem for him come the start of the season

Sepang test: Jorge Lorenzo admits Bridgestone struggles
By Matthew Birt


06 February 2009 13:32


Spaniard Jorge Lorenzo has conceded he is finding the switch from Michelin to Bridgestone much tougher than expected as he struggled to produce a competitive pace in Sepang.

The Fiat Yamaha rider was only 10th quickest for the second successive day today as he finished 1.573s slower than Aussie Casey Stoner.

Lorenzo could only clock a best time of 2.03.056 as he admitted the transition to Bridgestone tyres was taking more time than he anticipated.

“I am just not fast enough on the tyres. Today was still quite difficult, although I am improving slowly. But I am not close to being where I expect to be. We have worked on our braking, because we have seen that Valentino is braking sooner than me and so I need to adapt.

"I need to use the hours we have and the available tyres in the best way possible, but that's the same for everybody! My main problems at the moment are the braking and the corner speed. Right now I don’t feel at one with the bike and this means I don’t have the confidence to ride fast.

"I know I can be faster than this because my bike isn’t much different to Valentino’s and he is quicker than me. Of course he was using Bridgestones last year as well and I am new to them, but Colin (Edwards) is also fast so this shows how competitive the bike is.”

Other former Michelin riders like Andrea Dovizioso and Nicky Hayden have complained that they can’t adapt to the harder compound tyre on offer from Bridgestone. The harder casing creates a lack of feel but Lorenzo told MCN: “I don’t have a good feeling with the medium or the hard tyre!”

Rossi, Capirossi enjoy ‘battle’ at Sepang
For ten minutes on Friday afternoon at Sepang Valentino Rossi and Loris Capirossi recreated their 2006 victory battle at the Malaysian circuit, although this time it was purely for fun.

The two Italians found themselves on track together at 4pm and, after almost two days of riding against the stopwatch, couldn't resist dicing with each other (pictured).

The duel eventually came to an end when Rossi, riding with six stitches in his hand and another six in his foot, was forced to back off - leaving Loris to wave his hand in appreciation as he rode past.

Afterwards, Crash.net asked Rossi about the 'battle': “It was great fun! I am always very happy to fight with Loris because he is one of the old school - it is always exciting to try and fight with him.

“I think he enjoyed it a lot as well because he was faster than me. He overtook me in braking and it was like an old battle between us. Our 2006 battle here [won by Rossi] was a great race and today was very similar, except then Loris was on a Ducati.

“I am so happy that Loris is fast, because last year he had a bad injury and it looked like the Suzuki was not very fast, but this year with the new bike and with no injury he is competitive.

“And Loris is 36 years old now, so I have seven more years!” smiled Rossi, who finished the day third fastest, 0.143sec from fastest man Casey Stoner and 0.071sec behind the on-form Capirossi.

Capirossi confirmed that he had enjoyed the 'fight' just as much as Rossi.

"Yeah we played a little bit at the end, it was nice," smiled Loris, standing outside the Team Suzuki pit. "We enjoyed it a lot because he overtook me and I overtook him. Sometimes it is nice to ride like that and whenever I race with Valentino it is fun. For sure we hope to race like that again this season..."
