Desmo Dovi After The Win At Catalan GP 2017

Andrea Dovizioso, P1: “We realized the grip was so bad and the rear tyre consumption so high, that we shouldn’t just focus on the speed. And when we started the race, no one could push because everyone had to save the tyre a lot.

I overtook a few riders and was behind Dani, and decided to stay there. He saved the rear tyre well, and I did, but I was able to conserve the front. I didn’t know what was going on behind or if someone was able to catch us because our pace wasn’t very high. Ten laps to the end I tried to push but when I got to the front I realized my tyre was finished! But it was the same for them, too. It’s a strange feeling because I’ve never won by not pushing 100%!
