Dovizioso to fight for podium

Dovizioso to fight for podium

Andrea Dovizioso improved his time from yesterday by more than 1.5 seconds, and will fight for the podium from the second row on the grid at the AirAsia British Grand Prix.

Dovizioso, who scored a second place finish at the SIlverstone race in 2010, tried to make the most of today's two sessions in dry conditions to take another step forward.

Andrea Dovizioso:
"Compared to this morning's practice we improved the bike and I had quite a good feeling with my machine. We worked on the set up to have more control especially over the bumps and the different track surfaces. After 10 laps we managed a 2'03.8 with the hard tyres, which is not too bad. In the afternoon we were faster, but the others also improved a lot. We need to analyse the data and understand in which areas we can work to gain some tenths. Tomorrow we will begin from the second row and it will be very important to have a good start and maintain contact with the riders at the front.”
