Dovizioso determined to improve on Saturday

Dovizioso determined to improve on Saturday

Andrea Dovizioso is using a thirteenth place on Friday to motivate him for Saturday improvement.

Andrea Dovizioso was the only rider unable to improve his best time in the afternoon at Donington Park, but his JiR Team Scot crew will be going all-out to improve his placing and race pace in tomorrow´s crucial final practice sessions..

Andrea Dovizioso – Thirteenth

`Obviously I´m not satisfied with the final position but I am optimistic because with hard work we´ll go quicker tomorrow and we obviously can do a better pace in race configuration and I do think that we can find all the solutions we need to be competitive. We did a good lap time in the morning and in the afternoon our approach was different as we looked at the right tyre choice to make between the Michelin material I had at my disposal. We also tried something in case the weather conditions would change. It is also necessary to find the right balance of the bike and to find rear stability and get the bike efficient in corner speed. I have also to work on the overall rhythm, as the layout of racetrack is very particular, with part of the track fast and another part very narrow and start/stop which breaks the rhythm a little.´
