Dovizioso predicts Pedrosa, Rossi and Stoner 2007 repeat

Dovizioso predicts Pedrosa, Rossi and Stoner 2007 repeat

Starting seventh on the grid, Andrea Dovizioso identifies 2007 top three as the ones to watch in the 2008 Gran Premi Cinzano de Catalunya.

On the back foot after some front-end problems halted his Catalunya progress, Andrea Dovizioso had a creditable showing in qualifying in Barcelona. The JiR Team Scot rider will be aiming to get up amongst the leaders from seventh, but predicts a repeat of last year´s top three..

Andrea Dovizioso - Seventh

`We did much better today and I was able to constantly lap with the pace in the low 1´43 bracket which allows me to stay with the leaders. This is why I think that tomorrow we will have a good race as the small troubles I had with the front-end of the bike have been reduced. I think the people who will be competitive in the race will be Pedrosa, Rossi and Stoner up front. On the other hand some other riders who did well in qualifying today may not be so competitive in the race. Tomorrow the tyre choice is important according to the temperature and the overall weather conditions. In fact, what has been apparent over the last two days is how the conditions can change the grip levels so much. I´m very satisfied with our performance even on qualifying tyres and at least I can now say that I´ve made a step forward. In tomorrow morning´s warm-up we may make some small adjustments to make further improvements.´
