Dovizioso: “We are still a bit off the pace”

Dovizioso: “We are still a bit off the pace”

Andrea Dovizioso gained a better idea of the direction he needs to head setup-wise as he spent Tuesday exclusively on the Ducati GP16.

The Italian had a GP15 and a GP16 at his disposal on the second day of the Sepang test, but spent the entire day on the latter, letting Ducati’s new test rider Casey Stoner focus on the former. Despite the Red Flag for Baz’s crash, which curtailed the team’s testing program, he still managed to complete 45 laps and record a 2’01.723 to end the day in 14th.

The three-day Sepang test concludes on Wednesday with the action kicking off at 10am local time.

Andrea Dovizioso: “It was a bit of a strange day, for several reasons. We had a few minor issues, which slowed us down a lot and conditioned the whole day. Unfortunately we were unable to carry out the scheduled back-to-back tests. This morning, after I had looked at some other riders, I got a better idea of the direction to take in my approach to the track with the Michelin tyres. We are still a bit off the pace, and for this reason there is still some way to go.”
