Andrea Dovizioso finally came back to victory after a long time; last one was in Qatar at the start of the season, but there was an emotional victory for him and Ducati, who needed a win in a friendly track with Italian Team who missed first position for a lot, considering that last one was in Mugello with Danilo Petrucci.
An emotional win for Andrea Dovizioso for a lot of reason, starting from the death of Ducati’s press officer Luca Semprini last week during Czech GP: “I dedicate this win to Ducati and Luca. We are struggling a lot but we are working really hard at the same time and this is really satisfying and brings energy for the future”.
If Marquez went wrong with rear tyre choice, Dovizioso and Ducati did the right one: “We were lucky on rear tyre choice, no one knew which tyre was better to race, but our work paid off because I had more grip than Marc in the last four laps. Maybe he used the rear much more than me and he was not able to create the gap he wanted to win”.
A crazy last move maneuver gave Dovi the win, a superb one unexpected from everyone: “I did not think to make that attack, but I did it and it worked, at most I would have gone wide finishing still 2nd. Even me was not expecting that move! I did really well turn 9 being able to have the opportunity to stay close to him and make an overtake. This is probably my best win, we did not have Marc’s pace but I was aggressive, I tried and we worked really well”
