Dovizioso satisfied with qualifying 5th in Le Mans

Repsol Honda rider ready to run with front group at Le Mans. Having seen his team-mate Dani Pedrosa finish on pole at the Grand Prix de France, Andrea Dovizioso was not unhappy his own decent qualifying result.

5th – Andrea Dovizioso Speaks… 

"Starting from the second row is ok and I feel I could have gone quicker still if I’d managed to get the maximum from the soft tyre. I’m happy though, because I had a good rhythm and was able to maintain a fast pace on both the soft and hard Bridgestone tyre options during the practice sessions. We’ll have to take a lot of care with the tyre selection because, with the changeable weather situation and temperature here, the choice of tyres for the race will be crucial. It’s likely that we won’t know which ones to use until just before the race when we’ll have the best idea of the conditions. Tonight we’re going to study a few more setting adjustments and aim to finalise things in the warm-up. I like this track and I’m looking forward to the race."
