Ducati’s Andrea Dovizioso wrapped up MotoGP testing for 2-14 by setting his best laptime on the Desmosedici so far, posting a 1’38.9 – three tenths faster than his qualifying time of 1’39.222 set this year.
The Italian was pleased with his times and pace on the only dry day and said he was able to run good pace on soft and hard Bridgestones but added the caveat that he didn’t place too much importance on test times.
“We had to do set-up testing to get some exact information for next year’s bike. We did a good job yesterday, lapping all day and everything went well. I set a really good lap time, our record at Jerez. Even though I don’t put a lot of importance on these times because many of our rivals were not here, it still gives you a lot of pleasure,” said Dovizioso.
“Above all we were quick all day on used, hard and soft tyres, so this is even more confirmation that the bike has improved since mid-season and that we went better than what we did at Jerez in the race. Today I didn’t do any more laps because of the weather conditions, but there wasn’t much else to test.”
