Dovizioso out of time in Friday activity

Dovizioso out of time in Friday activity

JiR Team Scot rider Andrea Dovizioso did not have time to complete his desired work schedule on Friday afternoon.

Andrea Dovizioso ran through the gamut of wet tyres in practice at Valencia on Friday, but was left just short of time when it came to using an extra setting. The JiR Team Scot rider placed sixth in the afternoon run after halting the morning session early.

Andrea Dovizioso - Sixth

`This afternoon we have done a good job with both the team and Michelin. I am happy with the result that we have reached, because under these conditions it was not easy to go fast and many riders have been slow. This morning we started working on a wet setting, but we stopped testing with ten minutes to go as the conditions were just too bad and we would be taking unnecessary risks. In the afternoon the track was still damp, I tried to run with three types of tyres from the wet range and we understood the way to go for practice tomorrow, if the weather does not change. I did want to try another configuration, to anticipate conditions tomorrow but we did not have time. Either way, I am confident that tomorrow we can improve.´
