Pedrosa delighted with improvement

Dani Pedrosa, Honda, Jerez 2009Dani Pedrosa declared himself extremely happy to make it on to the front row for the Spanish Grand Prix at Jerez.

The 23-year-old Spaniard, who only just reached the top 10 in Friday practice, improved significantly to qualify second on his factory Honda, just five hundredths of a second adrift of polesitter Jorge Lorenzo.

"Yesterday wasn't good but today we've improved a lot so I'm happy," Pedrosa told BBC TV.

"I'm very happy to be on the front row for my home race. Today I think we did a much better job, but there are still some things in the bike, which I need to improve. I just hope for a good race tomorrow."

Pedrosa's grid spot was his best of the year, his previous best having been a disappointing 11th place start in Japan last weekend.
