โ€œIt was really important for me to test here at Misano, because the level is extremely high in the DTM and there are many things to manage while youโ€™re at the wheel.

With the help of the team and Mattias Ekstrรถm, I clocked many laps to get as close as possible to the front runners,โ€ said Dovizioso.
