Good Start For Dovizioso, Third On First Day Of Free Practice For British GP At Silverstone. Crutchlow Fourteenth


Ducati Team riders Andrea Dovizioso and Cal Crutchlow finished the first day of free practice at Silverstone, where round 12 of the MotoGP World Championship is being held, in third and fourteenth place respectively.

Dovizioso made good progress throughout the day; the Italian rider was fast right from the start of this morning’s session, ending up with third quickest time, and then repeated the performance in the afternoon run. His team-mate Crutchlow instead had a tougher time today, and for the moment has been unable to establish a good feeling with his Desmosedici GP14 at his home track.

Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati Team #04) – 3rd (2’03.011)
“I am pleased with the time that I set and also with my pace on the medium tyre. For sure we have to improve even more because it’s difficult to obtain a good set-up due to the the track surface, which is very bumpy. However we have been constantly quick since the start of the morning session and this means that we have started the weekend well. My third place is of course a good result, but I think I could have done even better with the soft tyre, which in my opinion is potentially better than the medium one I used to set my time.”

Cal Crutchlow (Ducati Team #35) – 14th (2’04.057)
“It wasn't a very good day for us, we tried a few settings with the bike but they were not all working for me. We tried something in the end that I believe can decide the direction to go in for tomorrow, but we need to improve a lot in the corners to be able to turn the bike and have more feeling with the tyres. I look forward to tomorrow and hopefully improving for the rest of the weekend.”
