Dovizioso ready to go on the attack

Dovizioso ready to go on the attack

Italian MotoGP rookie Andrea Dovizioso will be taking an aggressive approach to Sunday´s Alice Grand Prix de France, after qualifying in tenth place.

Having battled through the pack on previous occasions this season JiR Team Scot´s Andrea Dovizioso is prepared to do so again at Le Mans in order to get his MotoGP rookie campaign back on track, having qualified on the fourth row in France.

Andrea Dovizioso – 10th

`Obviously we were looking for a better qualifying result. First of all I particularly like this racetrack and in race configuration we have found some good options of tyres for both front and rear and tomorrow after the warm-up we will be in the position to make the right choice according to the weather forecast and therefore the strategy that we will adopt. The choice will be in between looking for good handling and very good stability – two characteristics that normally don´t go very well together! We have gratefully received from Honda some new parts and this helps us to go forward. We are not yet getting the performance we want in qualifying and the result of this is that on race day I have to be very aggressive to join the leaders of the race. I hope tomorrow I will be competitive and up near the front of the race.´
