Dani Pedrosa leaves Sepang a day early.

Matthew Birt at MCN and the corporate MotoGP site are reporting that Dani Pedrosa has left the Sepang test a day early. Owing to surgery on his left knee in December, he has not recovered sufficient strength to complete race-distance simulations scheduled for Day 3. Considering that he rose to 4th on the time charts in Day 2 - within .4 sec of a similarly ailing Casey Stoner - and having completed everything else scheduled for his test regimen, this would seem to be a wise move.

It must be wondered if a similar conversation is taking place over in the Ducati garage for young Mr. Stoner’s condition, as well.

No comments in either report on the location of Alberto Puig.  If I were Dovi, I would have my head on a swivel.
