His race pace should be good
In the Australian GP second day of practice weather conditions have been similar to Friday and so riders could continue their job on the set-up of the bikes.
Fourth in the morning free practice (1'34”316), Andrea Dovizioso finished fourth
also in the second qualifying session being able to ride under 1'33” lap time.
Andrea is satisfied about the step forward done today compared to the first day of practice and he is confident he can do a further improvement during tomorrow's warm up.
His team-mate Yuki Takahashi improved yesterday's time of 1”3 seconds and so tomorrow he will start from 9th position. Still not 100% recovered, Yuki will line up in third row.
ANDREA DOVIZIOSO #34 – 4th in 1'33”866 at 1”149 from the pole
“It hasn't been easy to find the right balance of the bike, but in the afternoon we went on the right direction and this made me feel more confident in riding. We made a clear improvement compared to yesterday but we have to complete the job during the warm up; the important thing, though, is to have eventually found a good solution. The gap from Lorenzo is big, but it doesn't worry me too much as it becomes smaller in the race configuration”.
YUKI TAKAHASHI #55 – 9th in 1'34”486 at 1”769
“Things have definitely improved since yesterday; we have found a good set-up of the bike and now I am able to be faster in the entrance of the curves. It will be a very difficult race because I can't control perfectly the bike in the hard brakes. But, I feel more confident on the bike and tomorrow we are going to do few small adjustments during the warm up in order to be more competitive”.
