JiR Scot Honda’s Andrea Dovizioso has accused Britain’s James Toseland of being too aggressive and riding dangerously after this morning’s Phillip Island MotoGP round.

Dovizioso, who will replace Nicky Hayden in the Repsol Honda team next season, was involved in a dice for third with Toseland, Rossi, Lorenzo and Nakano for most of the race until the Fiat Yamaha man put the hammer down and chased down Hayden for second.

"I feel I made a tremendous race. If I had not had to recover from last after being pushed off the track at the start, we could have had a podium. At the start I kept on the left for the first turn, Lorenzo was almost alongside me and then he moved outside," said Dovizioso.


"This resulted in me finishing on the grass. From here I started a great comeback, even if in those first laps I could not push 100%, but instead I followed Valentino Rossi who also had the pace to gain positions. With Lorenzo we could have moved towards third position, but Toseland was too aggressive and a little dangerous while fighting for the lead of the group.

"The last ten laps the tyres were finished and I was not able to push anymore. At one of the corners, I had to go wide to avoid Toseland, who I was lining up to overtake, but because of this Nakano made it past us both. I am sorry to have lost the fourth place because it was a reality today."
