Francesco Guidotti, Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team Manager“It’s fantastic news that Dani wants to refresh himself with MotoGP this season. And Jerez makes good sense as it’s a popular place for us to test, and, also he knows the place very well. It will be an ideal opportunity for him to get more information for the future development of our race bike, and we look forward to having him with us in the pit box.”

Pit Beirer, KTM Motorsports Director“Mika Kallio, Dani Pedrosa and our whole test program are so important, and of course, they have limited track time. Dani is a strong guy with a strong mentality, and we always said that when he wanted to do a wildcard, we’d be happy to make that happen. 

The perfect ‘test’ is always a race situation. If we can work on future development parts, then it is super-important, and I’m pleased that Dani will race again.”
