(cafetheology.org) – Andrea Dovizioso starts his home weekend in Misano with nine points in the world championship. After four seasons, the 31-year-old is fighting for the MotoGP crown for the first time. For Ducati it would be the second World Championship title after Casey Stoner 2007. Since team colleague Jorge Lorenzo has no chance to the title, the question arises whether he would help Dovizioso in the remaining races and leave him his position. "I want to win," Lorenzo answers, when asked this question in Misano on Thursday. "I think it's too early for such a help, even if it's only about positions." Teamorder are rare in the Motorcycle World Championship. Dovizioso himself already said that he is not a fan of it. "I agree, because there are still six weekends left, and everyone is driving his own race," he said, "trying to win the race, which is his goal and is normal. " Dovizioso does not want to think about the title. Too much to be done: "The World Cup is still completely open, but Valentino is not here, but my opponents are strong, and there will be a close fight until the end of the season." Dovizioso still has a friend on the track. Pramac's colleague, Danilo Petrucci, would support his countryman if the situation needed: "At the moment nobody asked me, but yes, I would help Dovizioso, I would be happy, because I should be asked to fight top places. " Misano is also the home race of Petrucci. Ducati won on this track (2007 with Casey Stoner).

The success of Dovizioso is also not famous. Not once did he reach the podium. Four times he was fourth. "A podium is our goal," explains the World Cup leader. "On paper, it 's not a good track for us, but we had good results this year on tracks that are not good for us, and we need to be relaxed and manage the weekend like Silverstone, where I was not Fastest, but we worked well and the race went perfectly. "Lorenzo also does not see Misano as a paradise for Desmosedici. But he remembers the past: "Casey was not so bad here, he led in 2008 and then he was overthrown, not the favorite of Andrea, he was on all other routes, so he should not be around here "As the Austin and the Sachsenring, Misano is not one of our best tracks, and the driver has a lot of influence depending on how well you feel on a track." Lorenzo himself could win with Yamaha three times in Misano. In his opinion, the favorite role at Honda is: "Marquez was very quick at the test, Vinales, too, and he will be in the lead after he had a lot of trouble with the ground shafts at Silverstone. " About three weeks ago the Werksteams completed a private test on this track.
