Andrea Dovizioso reports back to the top field on MotoGP Friday in Spielberg - where he sees progress and how the other Ducati drivers sum up the day

Since the modern MotoGP at the Red Bull Ring, Ducati is unbeaten there. Therefore, despite the recent form crisis in the factory team, it was firmly expected that Andrea Dovizioso and Co. would report back stronger in Spielberg. And as the second fastest on Friday, "Dovi" didn't disappoint.

Recently completely lost in Brno, the Italian only had to admit defeat to KTM competitor Pol Espargaro at the start of training. Dovizioso does not want to attribute this to the special rear tire that Michelin brought to Austria. So far he has had a lot of trouble with the new variant.

Ducati rider Andrea Dovizioso took pole position for MotoGP's Czech Grand Prix, beating Valentino Rossi by two tenths in Tito Rabat (Avintia Ducati ) and Maverick Vinales completed the Q2 order, with the latter posting a time three tenths slower than the one that had allowed him to progress out of Q1.

"I think there is a misunderstanding," says the 34-year-old and explains: "The rear tire is not the same here as last year. Michelin adjusts the casing every time we come to Austria because the wear and tear is right is high. "

Dovizioso: "The track helps us to be fast"

"The Soft and Medium are based on this year's casing. The hard tire has the old casing, but no one tried it last year and I think this one will be The year does not change. So the situation is the same as on the other weekends, "says Dovizioso. And where does the increase come from?

"I think the track helps us to be faster. It suits our bike better. After Brno, we also carefully studied the data and changed small things in the set-up, but above all the way I brake. The feeling has gotten a lot better. So I was able to be consistently fast. "

Andrea Dovizioso admits Ducati expected to struggle at the San Marino Grand Prix following the recent MotoGP test at its home Misano circuit. He also lacked pace at the two-day Misano test following the British Grand Prix, with Ducati knowing then the race weekend would prove difficult.

It only takes a look at Dovizioso 's face to figure out the steaming disappointment and understandable anger swirling around in his head. He'll have two weeks to do it before two races in a row: in Brno and then the friendly Red Bull Ring. “I already said it: this championship is different than the ones in

With regard to his braking style, Dovizioso explains: "With Michelin tires, even small things that you change in your driving style can make a big difference. This was also shown in Brno: everything suffers just because it doesn't work perfectly on the brakes It's hard to understand, but that's MotoGP today. "

Jack Miller feels better than in Brno too.

In Brno the Italian thinks he has a good chance of challenging the others. "After the first day of training, I see four drivers with good pace," he analyzes. "But it was only the first training session. A lot can change that tomorrow."

BIG news on the horizon!

The Ducati driver is aware that the competition in Spielberg has increased compared to previous years, especially in terms of acceleration. "So in the race I no longer see just two or three drivers in front. But whatever, we're in. We just have to work a little more with used tires."

Andrea Dovizioso (born 23 March 1986) is a professional motorcycle racer who competes in the MotoGP world championship for the factory Ducati Corse team. He won the 125cc World Championship in 2004.

Italy's Andrea Dovizioso topped Friday's first two free practice sessions for this weekend's Austrian MotoGP at Spielberg . Dovizioso , runner-up in Austria last year behind Italian Andrea Iannone, clocked a fastest lap of 1min 24.46sec at the end of the "We're starting with a good feeling again .

As the second best Ducati rider, Johann Zarco made it into the top 10 again in sixth place on Friday. He beat Jack Miller by a few hundredths, who was eighth. After a difficult weekend for him in Brno, the Australian is seeing progress: "It felt better from the first lap on."

Yellow flag prevents better placement

Although the motorcycle is still a bit restless in some sections of the track, "mainly near the braking zone of Turn 3," says Miller, "apart from that, I'm pretty happy with the performance." At the end of the day, the Pramac driver was half a second short of the lead on his fastest lap.

It could have been even better: "In the last lap of FT1 I drove my best sector, but in the corner I caught Bradley's yellow flag (Smith; d. R.), so I was a little unlucky. But the bike worked well. " In the afternoon Miller was even first, but that didn't mean much.

Because it kept dripping in certain bends in the afternoon, driving was kept to a minimum. Only when the track dried out did more drivers complete their laps, but the times remained well below those of the morning session.

Michele Pirro: On Friday still test work for Ducati

Danilo Petrucci started well in it too, "but towards the end, in attack mode, we had problems with the brakes as always," says the Italian. "I use the engine brake more intensively than others, but the feeling with the motorcycle is not constant. With every lap that I try to brake hard, I have to go a long way and lose time."

Dovi Quits Ducati, Then Beats Everyone.A red flag at nine laps and a 20-lap restart resulted from a 200-mph contact between Johann Zarco’s Ducati and Franco Morbidelli’s Yamaha, both braking. Morbi’s front wheel appeared to touch Zarco’s rear tire. The two bikes flew on, shedding parts—the Yamaha passing between Valentino Rossi and Maverick Viñales, miraculously touching neither. Zarco’s Ducati hit a barrier, shattering its rear wheel, and flew on, again narrowly missing the Yamaha factory riders. Both downed riders were able to walk away. Those who wish to wrangle over possible blame are welcome to do so.
