Just when we thought the
different winning pattern would be over, we got to see Repsol Honda rider Dani Pedrosa become
the eighth different winner in 2016 . Three-time world champion Dani Pedrosa of
Repsol Honda Team took a great victory at Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli
in Italy, beating Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo of Movistar Yamaha MotoGP to be content with the second and third slots.
Pedrosa's win also meant that he
was the eighth different winner in 2016, an all-time first since the
championship began in 1949. And to top this magical moment, he won despite
starting eighth on the grid. Pedrosa got an incredible start from P8 to move him
up into the front group, joining Viñales, Dovizioso and Marc Marquez (Repsol
Honda Team) in the squabble for P3.
soon Rossi sprinted ahead , beating his Lorenzo at the final corner and pushing
the reigning champion wide, taking the lead. But then Pedrosa who set a new lap
record, took charge with an incredible burst of energy and becoming the eighth
different winner in 2016 and also to win his first race of the season and his
29th MotoGP success. He also gave Honda its fourth victory from the last six
races to increase Honda’s lead in the Constructor’s World Championship. Teammate
Marc Marquez finished fourth in the tense, tight race to take a 43-point lead
into the last five of 18 races.
The 2013 and 2014 MotoGP World
Champion continued his brilliant consistency with his 13th-point-scoring ride
from the 13 races so far. The 23-year-old is the only rider across all three
Grand Prix classes – MotoGP, Moto2 and Moto3 – to have scored points at every
race. His result also played its part in
the Repsol Honda Team’s 26-point advantage in the MotoGP Teams’ Championship.
Pedrosa’s ride also showed the
recent gains HRC engineers have made with electronics set-up, while his
improved feeling with the latest Michelin tyres was also a factor.
