Pedrosa wanted Yamaha for 2010

Spanish Smurf stays at Honda after Yamaha bunk falls through

FAST SPANIARD Dani Pedrosa has said he would have liked to have defected to Yamaha, after signing to stay with his current MotoGP employers, Repsol Honda.

Pedrosa told Italia1 television that there were no openings at Yamaha, hence his decision to stay at Honda.

The Spaniard confirmed at this weekend's Misao GP that he would stay with Repsol Honda for another two years, if all worked out to his liking. He also stated that Honda must improve their machinery if he is to fulfil his contract:

"I've given Honda my faith for one more year to see if they can make the bike better," pledged Pedrosa.  "Otherwise, after one year without improvement, maybe it'll be over."

When asked why he hadn't defected to Yamaha already, the Spaniard replied:

"Simply because there was no room at Yamaha. That would have been good."
