Andrea Dovizioso getting closer to the final decision about his future in MotoGP arena, whether to join the LCR Honda team, or move to Yamaha Tech 3 squad Monsters, to be a tandem Cal Crutchlow. To the MCN, the Italian rider said that he would take this decision before the weekend.
Former 125cc world champion since the beginning of his career in grand prix has joined the Honda team. His last appearance was yesterday, when a fifth place finish in the Japanese GP, which marred a number of dramas.
"It's hard because I feel with Honda is currently the best compared to nine last year, because now my fight to fight victory. Of course it is difficult, but it depends on many circumstances, and now I have not decided anything," said Dovizioso told MCN.
Dovizioso to admit, there is a huge temptation to move to Tech 3, the team owned by Herve Poncharal. There, he must try to build a relationship with a different manufacturer.
Repsol Honda rider in third this year probably will sign a contract with Tech 3. The hope, impressive performance in his debut with 1.000cc engine, can provide assurance to the Yamaha factory team entered the season 2013.
"Honestly, I think about it. When you fast, then you get a lot of possibilities, and if I'm quick with Yamaha next year, then of course I have a chance to enter the factory team, and this is the target of every rider."
About race in Japan, Dovizioso admitted sadly. How not, he's in a good performance and have a chance on the podium. Unfortunately, that is not a good start (jump start), make him forced to undergo a penalty.
In fact, Dovizioso had to take over the course of the race after Casey Stoner made a small mistake. But because they have to undergo punishment, Dovizioso was forced into pitstop, and when returning to the track, he's a tight fight with Marco Simoncelli - who also lived a penalty for jump start - who can beat him on the last lap to finish in fourth.
