Andrea Dovizioso, 8th after the first day at Laguna Seca

The first day of testing for the United States Grand Prix has ended with Andrea Dovizioso, in eighth position, confirming the good result obtained in the morning session. After the first intense day, which was spent preparing for the race on Sunday, the JiR Team Scot squad has been selecting tyres, in weather conditions that should be similar to those of the race on Sunday.

"After the morning, where I gained confidence in a track that I had only experienced before with video games, I began to really enjoy Laguna Seca. With its particular layout, it is really different from the rest of the circuits of the world. In the afternoon we improved but not enough, as with many tracks this length, it's easy to lower your times at the start, but then as you get closer to the limit it's harder to take more time off your laptimes. We still have to choose tyres for the race, according to the temperature of the track, as conditions change a lot between the morning and afternoon."
