Andrea Dovizioso was very happy with his win at the Czech Grand prix. The whole Ducati team celebrated its double success at Brno where Jorge Lorenzo finished second.

“It was an incredible win! Before this weekend I was excited because I felt that we could do well. But I never expected such a spectacular victory. I was very quick right from the first session on Friday, [on Saturday] I did an awesome qualifying, in the race I had a perfect strategy, and so I’m very pleased with everything. I managed the race lap by lap, trying to interpret what was happening around me and see how the other guys were riding: I raced well without ever misusing the rear tyre and, even though I was having a bit of difficulty in the final stages, in any case I was able to fight off Jorge and Marc [Marquez], who today were both really on top form.”

“I’m very happy about my second place but also for the team’s 1-2 result. And I’m very proud about the way we were able to overturn the situation from Friday when we were in a bit of difficulty. Bit by bit we improved the bike to make it very competitive. And we found a setting and a strategy for the race that worked well.”

“I managed the situation [in the race] calmly, because it was vital to look after the tyres and get to the end of the race in the best possible condition in order to try and attack and play my cards. I was feeling good and the bike was very stable, but I was struggling a bit in acceleration and it was a pity because I could have fought for the win, but my pass on Marquez two laps from the end allowed Dovizioso to gain a small advantage and it wasn’t possible to pass Andrea, who did a really great race.”
