Andrea Dovizioso produced yet another fine performance at Le Mans to step onto the podium in the French GP with a third place finish.
The Italian rider, who started from the front row after placing second in qualifying, got off to a good start and crossed the line at the end of lap 1 in second place behind Lorenzo,
Dovizioso: “I am happy because it is always very important to score a podium finish and the one I got today confirms once again that we are competitive. The conditions were good, but after the mid-point of the race I was no longer able to keep the pace of Lorenzo.
"Unfortunately the tyre had a drop in grip and I was not able to be as efficient as in the first half of the race: I thought my speed was good enough to get me to the flag and allow me to fight for the win, but it was not possible. This confirms that we are still missing a little something and, even though we have to be satisfied with another podium, we still have to work hard and make further improvements to the GP15”.
