Dovizioso making no predictions after ninth in qualifying

JiR Team Scot rider to start from ninth in final race for satellite outfit.

Andrea Dovizioso will complete the third row for his final race with JiR Team Scot, and will be working closely with his soon-to-be former colleagues in Sunday´s warmup to further finetune the setup of his Honda RC212V.

Andrea Dovizioso - Ninth

`Today was an unusual round of qualifying, disturbed when the rain began to fall after just before it was half complete. This upset the entire test program with race tyres, and we immediately had to use qualifying rubber to avoid being near the back in case the bad weather worsened. In race configuration nobody has been able to do a complete job, and tomorrow if the weather were to maintain stable, we must make the most of warm-up to define our technical choices. This morning we completed the work started yesterday, in wet conditions, and with the wet track I was able to get a good performance. We cannot make a prediction on how things will go if it rains tomorrow either, but in both cases we must make a good start. If we start well, we could make a good race tomorrow.´
