Pedrosa admits his MotoGP career is under threat

Factory Honda rider assessing options as chronic arm pump problem appears inoperable.

Dani Pedrosa’s ongoing arm pump issues flared up again in today’s MotoGP season-opener in Qatar preventing the factory Honda rider from running at the front.

After the race, the Spaniard unexpectedly revealed that his career now hinges on finding a solution to the problem.

Despite salvaging 10 points with sixth position at Losail, the Spaniard is already considering his future options.

"Tonight’s race didn’t go to plan and unfortunately, I had serious problems with my right forearm which isn’t good news for me," he said. "I worked very hard over the winter in order to find a solution, because I was suffering in every race last season.”

Pedrosa explained that he cannot see any immediate solution.

“Every doctor recommended that I not undergo another operation and I have tried to look for alternatives, but by the looks of things nothing is working positively for it," he said.

"Now I have to assess my options and see what I can do. It is probably the most difficult moment of my career.

"I will do my best to find a solution but in this moment it is difficult to imagine what it could be."
