Dovizioso aiming to build on Austin podium result

Tuesday, 22 April 2014

Following his third place result in Texas, Andrea Dovizioso heads into the Gran Premio Red Bull de la República Argentina intending to keep the momentum going.

Dovizioso and his Ducati Team return to the American continent this weekend for the third round of the 2014 MotoGP™ season, though this time the destination is the southern hemisphere - more precisely Argentina and the new Autodromo Termas de Rio Hondo track.

Having scored the 84th podium in the World Championship for the Italian manufacturer, with his first rostrum appearance for Ducati, Dovizioso will tackle the forthcoming Grand Prix with renewed optimism, convinced that the work the whole team is carrying out is going in the right direction.

“The result in Texas was fantastic both for me and for all the team,” Dovizioso commented. “It was a really hard race, very tiring, and this third place gave me a special satisfaction. When you are able to obtain these results, which almost seem impossible, it is truly a great feeling.”

“We are working really hard and we are always trying to get the best out of our bike. Now we are going to Termas in Argentina, which is a new circuit for almost all the riders. I have no idea what to expect, but I always like to race on new circuits and so I am curious and very motivated.”

Dovizioso will be joined in the Ducati box in Argentina by compatriot Michele Pirro, the test rider who will substitute for injured Briton Cal Crutchlow.
