Dovizioso: “Tomorrow is not going to be easy…”

 Dovizioso: “Tomorrow is not going to be easy…”

Andrea Dovizioso produced another outstanding performance for the Ducati Team in Austin and will start from the front row in 2nd.

The Ducati Team rider powered his Desmosedici GP15 to the second-quickest time in qualifying, just 339 thousandths of a second away from pole-man Marquez.
 
On a cloudy but dry day, Dovizioso finished the morning’s third free practice session (FP3) in eighth place, guaranteeing him direct access to Q2. In Q2, Dovizioso, who went out in the last minutes of the session with a soft compound rear tyre, managed to notch up an excellent pace-setting time of 2’02.474, but he had to settle for second place after being passed by Marquez in the final moments of the session.
 
Andrea Dovizioso:
“When we get these results, it means that we have certainly been working well. I am very satisfied with the front row position and with my best time, and I’m also happy with the way my team has worked. We managed to improve the feeling a bit in FP4, and this allowed me to be aggressive in qualifying and record a really good time. Here in Texas we’ve had a bit more difficulty than in Qatar, because the Austin track is very unusual and the weather conditions have certainly not helped. Tomorrow is not going to be easy, but I have to say that we are competitive and so I think I can do a good race.”
