Dovizioso: Podium repeat unlikely if dry
8 July 2014 – Ducati's Andrea Dovizioso says he is unlikely to be on the podium again at the German Grand Prix if conditions are dry.
Dovizioso took advantage of the wet-dry weather in Assen two weeks ago to claim his second rostrum finish of the year, but is not expecting to be able to do that again at the Sachsenring.
"The result at Assen was very important for me and Ducati, but I don't think we have the speed in dry conditions to be able to aim for the podium too much," said the Italian.
"As always however we must push 100 per cent and improve over last year."
Dovizioso, who finished seventh twelve months ago in Germany, added: "In my opinion, the Sachsenring is too short and too tight for MotoGP.
"But I think the bike has improved from last year so we have to show the difference at every race, like we did at Assen..."
