Pedrosa, racing with the Repsol Honda Team, finished six of the first seven races on the podium, with a best result of second on three occasions. He won his first race of the season at the German Grand Prix, winning at the Sachsenring for the third year in succession. Pedrosa would finish the 2012 season with 7 wins and 15 podiums and as runner-up to Lorenzo with 332 points, the highest number of points ever gained without taking the title at the time.
Daniel Pedrosa is a Spanish former Grand Prix motorcycle racer who retired from competition at the end of the 2018 season. He was 125cc World Champion in 2003, and became the youngest 250cc World Champion in the 2004 season. He would repeat as the 250cc World Champion again in 2005.
In spite of never being a MotoGP world champion, Pedrosa won races in twelve consecutive seasons in the championship (2006–2017). He also finished as championship runner-up on three different occasions (2007, 2010 and 2012) and was within the top 5 in 11 of his 13 seasons. With 31 top class wins, placing him tied for 8th in total wins as of 2021, Pedrosa regularly tops lists of “the best MotoGP racers to never win the championship”. In 2019, the former Curva Dry Sac, a corner at the Spanish Circuito de Jerez, was renamed Curva Dani Pedrosa in his honor.
Pedrosa spent 13 seasons riding for Repsol Honda until the end of 2018. In a televised press announcement, he confirmed his retirement from MotoGP competition on 12 July of that year.
