GP Week : Issue 148
Repsol Honda rider Dani Pedrosa might be wishing he’d stayed on dry land, after falling foul of the Spanish Guardia Civil in Valencia, one of a number of people implicated in a cheating scandal at a Yachtmaster Certificate examination. Pedrosa was one of 21 suspects questioned over the alleged use of a earpieces, giving examinees the answers required to gain the seamanship qualification. Reports from Spain stated that 10 of the candidates were found to be wearing earpieces, including the triple World Champion. It is not known whether charges will be laid. Pedrosa issued a written statement during the week, saying: “Following bad advice I made a mistake. You can either ignore or learn from mistake, and I’ve learned from this. I would like to publicly apologise to my fans and all those who have shown faith in me. “Now I'm looking for ward. I'm a motorcycle rider, the world championship begins this weekend, and I want to focus solely and exclusively on Sunday's race. “I have learnt a lesson from this mistake and wish to leave the issue behind right now and focus on a season that I face with high motivation and enthusiasm.” DANI SAILS INTO TROUBLE Honda star apologises to fans 14 GPWEEK.com // PARTNERS: MOTOGP >>> NEWS
