Italian Grand Prix winner Dani Pedrosa is aiming to keep his MotoGP momentum going into this weekend's race at Silverstone. The Honda rider scored his first win of the season at Mugello to move into second place in the championship standings, 25 points behind Yamaha rival Jorge Lorenzo.
Pedrosa is feeling upbeat about his chances for the British race following his win in Italy, but concedes it will be crucial for the championship to be consistent in the upcoming three races in a row.
"We arrive at Silverstone in good shape after the victory in Mugello," said Pedrosa. "We had a very good weekend in Italy and myself and the team need to make the most of it to maintain this momentum.
"We will start on Friday without prior knowledge, but it's the same for everyone so I hope we can adapt as quickly as possible to prepare for the race. We will have three races in a row now – Britain, Holland and Catalunya – and it will be very important not to make mistakes and to maintain consistency in the results."
Teammate Andrea Dovizioso is also positive going into the British Grand Prix following his podium finish at Mugello.
"We arrive at this race in very good shape, with three podiums from four races, and we're feeling especially good after the podium at Mugello – my home race – because this was really significant for me," he said. "Now we have to take another step forward because on Sunday I want to fight for the win."
