Grande DOVI - 3rd place @ Austin

dovi austin podio ducatiThere are years since we last time saw Ducati on podium, today Andrea Dovizioso showed that we can start on hiping again.


Last time when Ducati took podium was in 2012 at Mugello when many third party factors led to that position, today, Dovi made it to catch a clean 3rd place podium with all the valid contenders in race.

They were all on track: Marquez, Pedrosa, Lorenzo, Rossi, Bradl, Bautista and also a dry weather. Lorenzo made a big mistake in the beginning you would say, but I will reply you that Dovi made the same lap times as Lorenzo during all the race, so, the things are really eaven.

The race started very good fro Ducati, Andrea Iannone taking on the 3rd place short after the start and holding it until his tyre worn out and in lap 7 started to gave up positions.
Andrea Dvizioso showed good tactics regarding his tyre and even under medication for his illness, he fought like no other on the most phisycal demanding track of the season.
He could barely speak at the end and the surprise of taking this 3rd place left him without words, he managed only to thank the team, to tell there is still work to do on the bike and that they are surprised.

Still, this is the day that we can finally say that Ducati is on the right track towards comming back among the competitive bikes.
