Dovizioso unable to find solution to setup problems

Dovizioso unable to find solution to setup problems

Fourteenth on the grid at Misano, Andrea Dovizioso will be fighting to salvage something from his San Marino visit on Sunday.

Expecting to make an improved showing on Saturday at Misano, JiR Team Scot´s Andrea Dovizioso continued to struggle in qualifying for the race that he came so close to winning with a 250cc machine in 2007.

Andrea Dovizioso - Fourteenth

`We need to think about the race tomorrow and focus on the best way in which to approach it. I put in a 1m 35.9s lap time despite the difficulties of the bike set-up. The Michelin rubber is proving satisfactory, but to recover so many positions from the start in the first few turns will be very difficult. If we were on the second and not the fifth row then we would have a better chance of a good result, obviously! Being positive, we still have warm-up tomorrow to exploit any changes in the bike to make some progress and then in the race we will give the maximum as always.´
