Dovizioso forced to adapt at Misano

Dovizioso forced to adapt at Misano

Andrea Dovizioso was struggling with bike stability in Friday´s practice sessions.

JiR Team Scot´s Andrea Dovizioso was having difficulties with his Honda RC212V´s stability on Friday, although he did hail a breakthrough with Michelin tyres.

Andrea Dovizioso - Thirteenth

`Throughout the first day of free practice I found the bike wasn´t very stable in the fast curves with the gas open – especially on the corner after the straight, Curvone and the Carro corner. This makes my trajectory through the corner different and has forced me to adapt my riding style so I cannot ride the Honda as I want at the moment and cannot be consistent. I did one fast lap and that gave me some ideas about how to improve the package for tomorrow. Today´s position does not reflect our value or potential. We will give the maximum as always and use the material at our disposal to the maximum. A positive sign has come from Michelin that after some difficult times, they have returned to their previous level of performance.´
