Andrea Dovizioso isn’t reading too much into the recent Catalunya test, when he was slower than his main rivals over a single lap.

Dovizioso points out that the Ducati was also not as fast at Mugello on the time sheets, yet team-mate Jorge Lorenzo headed a stunning one-two for the Italian manufacturer.

Heading into round seven of the championship, Dovi said he is ‘very excited and full of confidence’ ahead of the Catalan MotoGP.

“In the last three races we have been fighting for the win on three totally different tracks so I know that we are working well and that we are quick,” said the Italian rider, who is 29 points behind title leader Marc Marquez.



“We must continue to stay calm because lots of things can happen in every race and you have to have a clear head to bring home the best possible result.

“In the Barcelona test, but also in the one at Mugello, we were slightly slower than our rivals, but in MotoGP it is clear that the time over a single lap is not so important, and so we go to Barcelona very excited and full of confidence.”
