Injured Dani Pedrosa ruled out of Malaysia MotoGP

Injured Dani Pedrosa ruled out of Malaysia MotoGP



Honda's Dani Pedrosa will miss Sunday's Malaysian MotoGP after breaking his left collarbone last week.
That means championship leader Jorge Lorenzo only needs to finish in the top 10 to be crowned world champion with three races of the season to spare.

A Repsol Honda statement said there had been "a very slim chance" Pedrosa could have made the trip from Spain.
But "after careful consideration he has made the understandable decision to stay at home to continue his recovery".

Pedrosa, 25, returned to Spain for surgery to insert a plate in his collarbone after the crash in practice for last weekend's Japanese Grand Prix at Motegi.

He was the only rider who could possibly have caught Fiat Yamaha rider Lorenzo and prevented him winning the title, but even then it would have taken a remarkable loss of form by his compatriot.
"The target for his return remains the Australian Grand Prix, practice for which begins on 15 October," continued the statement from Pedrosa's team.

"In his absence, the Repsol Honda Team will not field a replacement rider this weekend, and so Andrea Dovizioso will fly the flag alone for the factory Honda squad in Malaysia."

Knock on wood but congrats to Jorge. I knew he would win a world title and IIRC the fact that he did at a younger age than Rossi is no small feat.

I would however have loved a last race battle for the championship like in the AMA classes this year.

We'll see if Rossi kicks Lorenzo off the track with his leg sticking out causing him to end up in 11th/12th place

He would still have to get injured and not be able to race for the rest of the year for it to even matter.
