A strong Misano test followed by an inspiring podium battle at Silverstone means Andrea Dovizioso is feeling 'excited' ahead of his and Ducati's home round.

"Of course after the race in Silverstone we arrive very excited for our home race," said Dovizioso. "We did the test here before Silverstone and it went very well. I think we made a step. The lap time was quite fast.

"So I'm really excited for this weekend. I think after the weekend in Silverstone we can fight... We still don't have the speed to stay with the first top four riders, but at Silverstone we were really close to the podium."
