After Ducati's dominant display at the Czech Grand Prix, Andrea Dovizioso and Jorge Lorenzo arrive in Austria hoping to further trim the huge advantage of runaway MotoGP leader Marc Marquez. Ducati's Italian rider Dovizioso won in Brno with Spanish teammate Lorenzo second and Marquez only third for Honda.The Spaniard's five victories and eight total podium finishes in 10 races this season mean he is still comfortably in first place in the rider standings, 49 points clear of Italian Valentino Rossi (Yamaha), who was fourth in Brno, and 68 ahead of Dovizioso. That year, Ducati swept the top places as Andrea Iannone and Dovizioso finished first and second.Marquez has a comfortable lead in the driver standings, but Honda is only second in the constructors table behind Yamaha because Dani Pedrosa is struggling in 12th.
