Dovizioso: “Tomorrow we can fight for the podium”

Dovizioso: “Tomorrow we can fight for the podium”

Andrea Dovizioso put in a splendid performance in qualifying at the Grand Prix of Qatar, powering to pole position with a time of 1’54.113.

The Ducati Team rider taking the brand-new Desmosedici GP15 to its race debut in the best possible way, claiming the 3rd pole position of his career in the process.

Andrea Dovizioso:
“I am very pleased because today’s pole position is the result of the work of an entire team of people: after two years in which we have suffered, finally we have succeeded in making a really competitive bike, and to be honest I did not think that we would be immediately so fast with the GP15. We worked really well during all the tests, even though we did not have much time available to develop the new bike. With the soft tyre, we managed to set a really awesome time, but even in the fourth free practice session with the medium tyre the feeling with the GP15 was something special, so I’m confident and I think that tomorrow we can fight for the podium. I want to thank Ducati and all the engineers who worked day and night in Bologna to get the bike ready for the Sepang 2 test, and I hope that I have been able to repay them with today’s pole position.”
