Since Dani Pedrosa debuted in MotoGP in 2006, the Repsol Honda rider took part in 199 races, all of them defending the colors of the energy company and the golden wing brand. On the verge of beginning its season 12 + 1 in the maximum cylinder capacity, the Spaniard is the only pilot of the history next to Giacomo Agostini in obtaining at least a victory during twelve consecutive seasons in the queen category.
Twelve years after his first race, Dani Pedrosa has achieved 112 podiums that recognize him as the second driver who has finished most times in the places of honor behind Valentino Rossi, ahead of multiple champions such as Doohan, Lawson or Rainey. His 31 victories, which have earned him the World Subchampionships in 2007, 2010 and 2012, also place him among the ten riders with the most triumphs in the premier category, surpassing brands of legends such as Kevin Schwantz, Kenny Roberts or Freddie Spencer.
At 32, Pedrosa has been one of the protagonists of the preseason of a new World Cup in which he aspires to continue expanding his records. It will be from next Sunday, when the 2018 season starts to roll under the spotlights of the Losail International Circuit, in Qatar..
