Dovizioso: `I did everything that was possible´

Dovizioso: `I did everything that was possible´

Eighth place was Andrea Dovizioso´s reward for his weekend struggles.

Andrea Dovizioso made the most of a difficult race to pick up more valuable championship points with an eighth place finish. The JiR Team Scot rider remains in contention for the Rookie of the Year honour.

Andrea Dovizioso - Eighth

`I did everything possible with the material at my disposal today. In the race I had to overtake many riders and recover positions that I lost from my starting position of 14th. My aim today was for fifth position, but I felt my front tyre wasn´t so good on the entrance to the corners, while the rear tyre was very good. In order to not lose contact with the other riders I had to maintain high corner speed, while other riders were able to be slower through the corners but then accelerate away. Despite this, today we again proved we can be competitive and we have to keep on this level.´
