Dovizioso already sits at the same table as Biaggi

The Ducati rider becomes the third Italian with most victories in the queen class, after equaling his compatriot with his triumph in Qatar.

He disembarked in the queen class, , already named MotoGP at that time, as a Honda bet in 2008 and formed a line with Haydn and Pedrosa in the garage of the Japanese brand in his first contact with the stars of the World Championship. Andrea Dovizioso started in the elite of the contest after achieving the 250cc and Italian second place finish. He had to wait a year to start adding victories in the cylinder.

In 2009 it was only an occasion that the pilot had Forlí to climb the highest step of the podium but there, began his personal account in a category where, with Sunday, has already managed to add a total of 13 wins. Despite the seven years of drought that he lived in the cylinder, Dovizioso returned to the path of victory with Ducati in 2016 and after a victory in Qatar against Márquez that was a carbon copy of what was seen on the track of Losail in 2018, The main trick of Borgo Panigale has reached the exploits of Max Biaggi in MotoGP.

The Ducati rider has become part of the podium of honor in Italy and after hunt for his compatriot, now only has ahead of the victories of Valentino Rossi and Agostini. It is true that these myths of the two wheels play in another league. The Doctor is the pilot of Tuscany with more wins to his credit, has 89, while the pilot with more titles in the history of the World Cup (15) reaches 68 wins. A few figures that are almost utopian for Dovizioso at 32 years old, although, if he managed to get close to them, it would be a sign of fighting, again, for what could be his first crown in the queen class.

In the last season, where the Italian was the rival who made Marquez more difficult in the fight for the title, Ducati rider added four wins that were added to a score that accumulated six wins of 2017 and one of 2016, in addition to the one he already got during the season in which Valentino won his last World title in the category. Biaggi achieved his thirteen wins in a much more distributed way. The Italian, except for his last year in the contest (2005), won at least one race in each of the seasons that was part of the queen class.

However, both he and the current leader of the World Cup, have not managed to bring any title to the country with more crowns in the queen class. Italy leads the table of winners with 20 championships and although two difficult tracks for the Ducati rider are now coming, Dovizioso will try to return to the path of victory to leave behind the Biaggi figures and also, to be one of the candidates again to fight for his first crown in a season that is predicted "more difficult for all".
