Mediaset: Dovizioso facing a great challenge with Yamaha

The Italian website Sport Mediaset features an article wherein former Honda rider Andrea Dovizioso, who will hit the track next year under the Tech 3 banner, declared himself prepared to try to defeat the team that kept him under their wing for ten years, asking for Yamaha’s help to succeed.

"It’s a very important challenge," said the Italian, who finished 3rd in the 2011 Championship with four second place podiums (France, Great Britain, Italy and the Czech Republic) and three third places (the Netherlands, Australia and Valencia), for a total of 228 points. “I can’t wait to start testing at Sepang to understand the real potential of the Yamaha. At Valencia, I felt the bike was good in some aspects and negative in others. To defeat Honda, there will need to be some work.”
