Repsol Honda's new boy says he's confident of beating his smurf-like team-mate
Dovizioso said: "Dani is a former 125cc and 250cc World Champion and a great rider, but first of all he is a good guy, probably even shyer than I am. Maybe this is the reason why we don't have a great feeling yet, but we will have a lot of time to know each other.
"To finish ahead of Dani would be important, and I am confident about my chances, but I will be mainly focused on stepping on the podium any time I can, being consistent with my new Honda HRC throughout the season."
Hmmmm, doesn't sound like things are all that rosey then, does it?
