Dovizioso: “Our Tifosi will provide us with an extra gear!”

Dovizioso: “Our Tifosi will provide us with an extra gear!”

Andrea Dovizioso is hoping that the passionate Ducati fans will help cheer him on to his first ever podium at Misano.

Dovizioso comes to Misano off the back of a great performance at Silverstone, where he finished third after a wet-weather battle with his fellow Ducati rider Danilo Petrucci of the Pramac Racing Team. This was his fifth podium of the season, and marked a turnaround in form for the Italian.

Dovizioso has never actually been on the Misano podium in the seven MotoGP™ races he has competed in since 2008, his best result a fourth place, which he obtained four times, in 2009, 2010, 2012 and 2014.

He currently lies in fifth in the championship standings with 120 points, thirty behind his teammate Andrea Iannone with six races left.

Andrea Dovizioso: “At Silverstone my GP15 was more competitive, and the Misano test at the end of August helped with that, so we come here pretty confident. We know that it won’t be easy to repeat that performance, but at least now we can stay closer to the guys at the front, as you could see in England. I have to admit that the Misano track is not one of my favourites, but this GP is also our second ‘home’ race so I feel sure our tifosi will provide us with an extra gear!”
