The Racing Line PIT STOP: Andrea Dovizioso (Shell Ducati Team)
The Racing Line PIT STOP: Andrea Dovizioso (Shell Ducati Team) will start on pole position today at the Shell Malaysia Moto GP Sepang International Circuit, as the Italian veteran sliced half a second off the time at the top and remained unthreatened. Fellow compatriot Valentino Rossi took P2 on his final lap, and Jorge Lorenzo on P3.
At qualifying, he started his session with soft rear tire, but after a few laps, went back to the pits and changed to hard compound and after two laps on the new tires, he got the fastest and eventually took pole position.
“We have good chances for today’s race, being on pole and confident with the bike, but its still very challenging, as the weather today will play a vital role on the race’s outcome” said the Ducati rider. Race day today at 3:00pm, Malaysia time.
