Disappointing qualifying session leaves Dovizioso chasing perfect start

Disappointing qualifying session leaves Dovizioso chasing perfect start

JiR Team Scot´s Andrea Dovizioso will start from ninth place at his first Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix.

The tight nature of the Laguna Seca circuit will make things doubly difficult for MotoGP rookie Andrea Dovizioso on Sunday, as the Italian takes off from a tricky position on the third row.

Andrea Dovizioso – Ninth

`During qualifying we had planned to develop the technical package better for the race, but to be honest I expected a greater improvement. Starting from the third row, here at Laguna Seca, means that I cannot commit the slightest error because in the first turn it is difficult to overtake, and it is important to gain positions immediately. I predict a tough race, as there are many riders who have the same pace. We will focus on a consistent pace for the entire duration of the race tomorrow.´
