Pedrosa: Malaysian GP Race is Unpredictable

The Spaniard heads into the race with a 33-point lead over Ducati's Andrea Dovizioso and his first shot at securing a fourth MotoGP title.

Ducati's Alvaro Bautista of Spain rode his machine to the second fastest time, posting 2:00.742, while Yamaha rider Johann Zarco of France was third fastest. "This morning we made a small mistake with the setup and lost the direction a little bit".

"Looks like at the moment Dani and Dovi have the best rhythm and then I am among a few riders that can fight for the podium", said the Honda rider.

Repsol Honda rider Dani Pedrosa claims he can not predict the outcome of the 17th series MotoGP race at the Malaysia Grand Prix.

"Then we sorted things out and I felt really good on the bike again in FP4, but in qualifying I crashed on my first run, which completely changed our plans".

That pushed operating income, including $21 million from Whole Foods Market, down 40% to $347 million. Going into today's earnings report, Amazon shares had risen nearly 30% this year.

"Im very happy with this pole, which is our third this year".

The Italian walked away from the crash unscathed but never threatened the front-runners in the two qualifying sessions and will line-up on the fourth row just behind last year's race victor, British Honda rider Cal Crutchlow.

"I set a fast lap and it seems the bike is competitive in both wet and dry track", he told during a media interaction. Tomorrow we'll try and have a good race.

Valentino Rossi was an impressive fourth, leading the second row of teammate Viñales and former teammate Lorenzo. "It won't be easy because here, every time you go on track the feeling is different, depending on temperature, if it rains or not, and so on, so we'll see what it's like tomorrow and do our best, like always".

Dovizioso won at Sepang past year, but Marquez nonetheless seems primed to close out a second consecutive title triumph, having prevailed in Australia last weekend. Row three is occupied by Alex Rins and Andrea Iannone, who line up alongside (having qualified just behind) seventh-placed Marquez. He had managed to keep his bike in control despite a front-end slide on turn one going wrong.
