Ducati Corse racer, Andrea Dovizioso looks optimistically at GP Teruel tomorrow weekend. This Italian rider believes he can appear more competitive than last week’s Aragon series.
In the Aragon Series last week, Andrea Dovizioso started in 13th place, despite overtaking a number of riders, but in the end he had to settle for finishing in 9th position, 8.6 seconds behind the fastest, Alex Rins.
After the race, the 34-year-old man admitted that he was constrained by the Desmosedici motorcycle tires. However, he is concerned that the same problem will not be found at the Teruel Grand Prix this weekend.
“Now we have a lot of data available that we can try to get a better grip on the tires, which will be a deciding factor during the race.”
“I can still improve my performance and if we are in the right direction then we should be more competitive (at the Teruel GP)” said Dovizioso as reported by Speedweek.
As a result of the less than optimal results at the Aragon Grand Prix last weekend, Dovizioso’s chances of winning the MotoGP this season are running out.
But that does not mean there are no opportunities, considering that currently his position is in the top four of the standings with 106 points. In that position, Dovizioso is only 15 points behind the temporary leader, Joan Mir.
With four series still remaining in the MotoGP event this season, Dovizioso is reluctant to throw the towel away in the title race. The person concerned is still determined to win his first world title at the Grand Prix event.
“There are still four races remaining and we are not far from our goal. However, we will not give up and will continue to fight until the end,” concluded Andrea Dovizioso.
Meanwhile, the remaining four series include the Teruel series, Europe, Valencia and Portugal. With only 15 gaps, mathematically Dovizioso should still have a very good chance of winning the title.
The Teruel GP itself will take place at the Ciudad del Motor Aragon Circuit, Spain on Sunday, October 25, 2020.
