Dovizioso eyes “opportunity to put things right” in Austin

Ducati rider looking for a little more luck in the Americas this season

Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati Team) has no luck in the Americas. Taken out last year in Argentina on the last lap, then at COTA, and then again in 2017 last time out, the Italian is looking to put a stop to the bad luck that has rolled his way on in the two continents – and the Desmosedici has a good podium record at the Circuit of the Americas.

Third in the Championship as it stands and having fought for the win until the last lap in Qatar, ‘DesmoDovi’ laid some good foundations in the season opener – looking to fulfill the chance to build on them as action gets underway in Austin.

Andrea Dovizioso: “I was clearly very disappointed after the race in Argentina but now, after a few days’ vacation, I am fully focused on the race in Texas. The Circuit of the Americas is a fantastic track, one of the best on the calendar, and it has totally different characteristics to the previous two circuits in Qatar and Argentina. I like racing a lot at Austin, also because there is a really good atmosphere, both in the circuit and downtown, and I’m up for the battle. It will be a good opportunity to put things right after Termas and I’m convinced that we can be really competitive on this track.”
