Interesting thing for me is Nicky's statement that Dovi is SO good on the brakes that he couldn't get by. Its overlooked that AD is known as brilliant on the brakes - always has. Where are the VAST majority of overtakes made? Yup on the BRAKES. So - you need a stronger bike to get by, and be able to match (or nearly match) a rider like Dovi braking to get by him and make it stick. Dovi's a great STARTER too, so he gets track position. Note that CC had the same issue last season - on equal performance kit, getting past Dovi is nigh impossible even if you're over the lap. I think NH will have the same issues with Dovi that CAl did at T3 - get stuck behind, or risk binning it (and him) in a do-or-die move to get by your teammate. Cal had the same issues with the HRC's at Qatar as well.
