Dovi steps up

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

While Jorge Lorenzo might be draw­ing all the head­lines for his re­turn to podium suc­cess at Jerez, his Du­cati team-mate An­drea Dovizioso had an even more im­pres­sive ride be­hind the Spa­niard as he charged through from 14th on the grid to take fifth.

Turn­ing around Du­cati’s Jerez for­tunes af­ter last year’s dis­as­trous race that saw him fail to fin­ish, and the top Du­cati be­ing An­drea Ian­none in sev­enth, Dovi’s suc­cess is in­dica­tive of the con­tin­u­ing im­prove­ments of the GP17 ma­chine.

Dovi started way back in 14th but fin­ished fifth
