‘DesmoDovi’ fights up into fifth

Italian makes it from out of Q2 to fighting in the top five

Saturday afternoon in Jerez was tough for Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati Team), as the Italian found himself unable to move through to Q2 and gearing up to start the Spanish GP fourteenth. The story had a page to turn, however, as ‘DesmoDovi’ picked his way through the field on Sunday to take fifth – another good haul of points at a more difficult track.

Andrea Dovizioso, P5: “A good result after not a particularly easy weekend, seeing as I was starting from way behind on the grid, something that makes things more complicated. However we were really good, and I managed to make up a lot of positions and ride in a calm way to get a good result at the flag. We worked well all weekend and yesterday I demonstrated that I had good pace, but starting from behind certainly doesn’t help and so I have to try and be more incisive in practice and qualifying. I have to congratulate Jorge because he rode really well throughout the weekend and scored a great result for himself and for Ducati.”
