New MotoGP championship leader Andrea Dovizioso heads into this weekend's San Marino Grand Prix with a slender nine-point advantage to defend over reigning world champion Marc Marquez."In the past the Misano circuit hasn't been too favorable for Ducati, but a couple of weeks back we did a very positive test at this circuit and we are on good form, so we'll be trying to take home the best possible result".The 31-year-old was losing ground in the title race a month ago, when he was 21 points adrift of Marquez after the Spaniard's back-to-back wins in Germany and the Czech Republic. Marquez has won four times in total at this race, which is called the San Marino Grand Prix because of its proximity to the country and the fact that there is already an Italian race at Mugello.
