DOHA, NNCThe Qatar MotoGP race a few days ago left a story of tight competition between Andrea Dovizioso and Marc Marquez. In the end, Dovi came out as the winner of the Qatar GP. Even so, he praised Marquez, who he called the only rider who could bring such intense competition.

"In the end he was able to overtake me, with great precision. He was very good at trying to overtake also when he did not have the same speed. I could respond in the right way because my acceleration was very good," said Dovizioso told by GPOne.

"It's nice to win like this, against world champions. But, only Marc can do something like that."

"In such a situation, no one tried to overtake. It was a desperate situation, he wanted to try."

"All other drivers in that situation will think of staying behind me and finishing second. So, it is a positive thing to finish like this. But unfortunately, that is the advantage. He can create it, and sometimes it is successful and sometimes fails," he added.

As it is known, Dovizioso was the fastest racer on the Losail circuit on Monday (03/11/2019). He became the fastest with a time of 42 minutes 36.902 seconds. Marquez was 0.023 seconds slower to settle for second place.

The frequent overtakings between Dovizioso and Marquez that lasts until the last corner before the finish line. The superiority of the Ducati motorbike makes Dovozioso not lose first place from Marquez in one corner.
