Ducati’s Andrea Dovizioso goes into this weekend’s Silverstone MotoGP on a confidence high after putting one over on Marc Marquez through the last corner in Austria to claim only his second win of the season.
Dovizioso closed the championship gap to Marquez by five points and hopes to do at least the same again this weekend at a track where he was last victorious in 2017.
“Nothing gives you more satisfaction and confidence than a victory, and so we come to Silverstone with our morale sky-high,” said Dovizioso.
Our result at the Red Bull Ring didn’t come about by chance, because we worked really well over the two successive race weekends and the results proved us to be right.
“Even though the characteristics of the British track are not as favourable to us as Brno and Zeltweg, we have already shown that we can also be quick at Silverstone, like in 2017 when we won the race.
“As always, the weather will play an important part and we have to be ready to adapt to any circumstances.”
