Dovizioso hoping for overnight rain in Sepang

Dovizioso hoping for overnight rain in Sepang

JiR Team Scot´s Andrea Dovizioso believes that rain will improve track conditions for the Polini Malaysian Motorcycle Grand Prix.

Andrea Dovizioso is hoping for rain in order to best aid his attempts to move up the timesheet in Sepang. The Italian finished eighth on Friday.

Andrea Dovizioso - Eighth

`Today was a good practice day that ended with a good result. We wanted to do a more intensive programme of testing but this morning the tarmac was simply too slick and the condition of the track not the best, but we did try some tyre solutions as we concentrated on finishing our set-up for the race. The data from the set-up of the chassis has helped define our work and tells us the direction in which we need to improve. I´m satisfied because on this track speed and technical know-how are important and I did a good lap-time and tomorrow we could be more competitive and the conditions of the track will also be better if it rains tonight.´
