Валентино Pосси считает, что в следующим сезоне его главным соперником в борьбе за титул чемпиона будет Дани Педроса! А отнюдь не Хейден. Valentino Rossi believes Dani Pedrosa will be the biggest threat to him retaining his crown as the king of MotoGP - not Nicky Hayden. In October Hayden stopped Rossi`s run of five straight world titles in motorcycling`s premier series in dramatic circumstances. But he singled out the American`s youthful Honda team-mate as the man to watch in 2007 after the Spaniard ran Rossi closest in Jerez testing last week. Из интервью Вале MCN: "Next year Pedrosa is going to be very strong because he has more experience." "He will be one of the best and strongest rivals, but we already knew this. That bike is very good for him and for his size." "He will be very difficult to beat and he will be dangerous next year." В свою очередь, и действующий чемпион мира, Ники Хейден также считает Педросу своим главным соперником!! World champion Nicky Hayden has identified his Repsol Honda team-mate Dani Pedrosa as a major threat to the retention of his title. Following on from Valentino Rossi`s backing of the young Spaniard last week (Rossi: Watch out for Pedrosa ), Hayden has also voiced his support for the 21-year-old, saying he will be better suited to the smaller capacity 800cc bikes. The new machines will be used from the start of next season and Hayden, who took the world crown in a thrilling finale in Jerez at the end of October, is backing Pedrosa to take to the new bikes better than most. "He`s going to be strong because he was pretty quick on the 990," Hayden told MCN. "I`m sure his size will help him and Dani`s going to get along with it better because it`s more like a 250. "I`m going to need to drop a few more kilos as the bike is so small. I`m sure he`s going to be tough to beat." Мой вольный перевод всего вышесказанного: Всем дрожать! В следующем году Дани возьмется за титул не по-деццки!!
