(cafetheology.org) – Ducati driver Andrea Dovizioso secured the world championship at the MotoGP race in Silverstone with his fourth season of the season and leads the overall evaluation before the Grand Prix of San Marino with nine points ahead of Honda competitor Marc Marquez. The Spaniard had to record a Nuller in the UK because of an engine placer and lost the World Cup leadership thereby. But in Misano he wants to return to the market. But Dovizioso has a run. Both in Spielberg and Silverstone, the Italian won the Hattrick – especially since the Grand Prix of San Marino is certainly his second home Grand Prix and "Desmo Dovi" already won in Mugello. The motivation of the world championship is correspondingly high. He still stood out in nine MotoGP races in Misano, where he had never finished before. He never missed the podium, but he was four times fourth. This is expected to change this year. "As a World Cup leader, coming to Misano is fantastic," says Dovizioso, "although I am very sorry for Rossi that he can not be here, it would have been great to fight him." Yamaha star Valentino Rossi is in Misano because of a calf and shinbone break. There will not be a substitute for him.Lorenzo: "The upswing of the last races confirm"

Dovizioso knows that the Misano circuit was not one of his favorites in the past, "but a few weeks ago, we had a very positive test on this course. Our form is right and we will try to get the best possible result". This also applies to Ducati team colleague Jorge Lorenzo, who can look back on a remarkable record with three victories and four second places in Misano. The Spaniard is now looking to build on old success with Ducati. In the meantime, a last weekend at Silverstone, where he finished fifth, gave him a fifth place finish. With 3.5 seconds behind Rennsieger Dovizioso the distance forward was however as small as never in his season. "The goal in Misano will be to confirm the upswing of the last races where I have gained more experience and confidence with the bike," says Lorenzo. "The test we had here was very positive, so we did on the first day with a good start, and Misano is one of my favorite tracks, I won several times in the MotoGP and I am convinced that we can make a good result, "the Ducati pilot is optimistic. The support and enthusiasm of the local Ducati fans will be an "additional incentive". And because it is a home grand prix, the manufacturer sends the test pilots Michele Pirro on the third desmosedici in addition to the factory pilots. After Mugello it is the second wild card for the Italian. There he was ninth. "It's an extraordinary moment for us," says Pirro. "We need to remain focused and master all race situations with a clear head. Our potential is great, we must take advantage of that."
