Determined performance from Dovizioso

Determined performance from Dovizioso

Andrea Dovizioso started from 10th on the grid in France and once more was able to move back up the rankings and finish the race in 6th position.

JiR Team Scot´s MotoGP rookie Andrea Dovizioso survived an early collision with Yamaha's James Toseland to score another top ten result at Le Mans.

Andrea Dovizioso – 6th

`Today I didn´t start very well and at the beginning of the race it was hard to gain positions, but I was soon moving through the field when I caught up with James Toseland. We overtook each other a few times, but when I was in one of the downhill corners, I was accelerating when James hit me very hard from behind. Thank God I didn´t crash but his front tyre hit my body and my leather suit shows marks from his tyre and also the bike has some black rubber marks on the rear part of it. For this reason I lost a lot of time and probably without this fact I could have done even better by the end of the race. We have to do better in qualifying – we know that – and also work to have a better pace in the race.´
