Dovizioso apologetic after finishing outside top ten

Dovizioso apologetic after finishing outside top ten

JiR Team Scot´s Andrea Dovizioso was back in the point scoring positions in China after his crash in Estoril.

MotoGP rookie Andrea Dovizioso apologised to his team after finishing in eleventh place at the Pramac Grand Prix of China, but the positive side of his visit to Shanghai was his return to scoring points following his crash at the last round in Portugal.

Andrea Dovizioso – 11th

`The final result of today doesn´t show our real potential. From 11th on the grid I knew I was still in a good condition to come up to the front of the race and fight for the top positions. During the first part of race I really showed my potential for a good result. I was so sorry to be further back at the chequered flag but the weather conditions forced us to make some technical choices that we had not really tested in these conditions. I tried to resist the attacks from Hayden and Melandri, but unfortunately the situation we had got worse and I had to slow down a lot meaning I didn´t have the chance to fight. I´m sorry for the team as they all worked so hard and I was looking for a better result, which would give us more satisfaction after so much hard work was done over the course of the weekend.´
