Though Dovizioso also did not shirk his own role in the results - "For sure our bike is not the best for this track and these conditions, but some riders were faster than me so it means I didn’t ride at my maximum," he said – but this was also the nature of the bike. "Unfortunately it's similar to the past!" he laughed. "This is the bad thing and the normal thing. This confirms that this kind of track is more difficult for us compared to other tracks."
Termas de Rio Hondo, 26 April: LCR racer Stefan Bradl missed the chance to produce another strong result in today’s first 15-min Q2 session at Termas de Rio Hondo, having suffered a big high-side on his second flying lap. The German used his prior knowledge of the new circuit to slot into the top five yesterday and his pace quickened significantly on day two but his performance on soft rubber was ruined by the tumble. He was not comfortable enough to rejoin the session in the last minutes and was taken to the Medical Centre for further investigation. After the treatment the 29-year-old felt much better and he is now ready to start the 25-lap race from the 9th spot on the grid.
Andrea Dovizioso wasn't certain it was all down to the wind, but the wind certainly hadn't helped. "I don't know," he said. " It's always difficult to know this. Maybe yes. But I can't say and it's six years I've been riding this bike, so to say 'okay we have a negative point in these conditions…' I'm not sure. For sure it was difficult. Very, very difficult. I have to close the throttle in turn four, in the straight, so it was scary."
Yes, no surprises, Marc Marquez was the one to have a go on slicks too, but he came straight back in for another set of wets without even starting a flying lap.
x251C Through (Turns) 7 and 8 was the worst, it was completely wet, a lot of standing water and was very dangerous. I nearly went down a few times there by just trying to touch the gas a little bit and it just tried to go over on me. x251D

Jorge Lorenzo struggled on the factory Ducati as he finished 16th fastest behind Scott Redding (Octo Pramac Ducati). Lorenzo's team-mate, Andrea Dovizioso , has work to do from 18th on the GP17, while rookie Johann Zarco (Monster Yamaha Tech 8) was 19th quickest on the satellite M1.
"We could not wait for a full lap from him to really say the slick is the best one, so when I had to choose, I say 'I stay with the rain and I'm going to push'.
Put this together with Márquez' lead of four tenths of a second in the dry on Friday, and you have to say that the Spaniard starts the race on Sunday as the absolute favorite, whatever the conditions. Starting from sixth will slow him down, but is unlikely to hold him back for long. "I'm happy because sixth place is not so bad," he said. "We are there. Only one row in front of us."
It is obvious that Movistar has taken the quote out of context to try to boost the audience for the full interview when it airs. Throwing out a quote which can seem controversial without the context in which it was made is a good way of generating interest from the fans and media. The press will leap upon the quote and write about it, and more people tune in to watch the whole interview. Whether that interview lives up to their expectations afterwards doesn't really matter. After all, the trailers for Hollywood blockbusters always show the most exciting parts of the film, not the long stretches during which the narrative is being expounded.
