Andrea Dovizioso (born 23 March 1986) is a professional motorcycle road racer who currently competes in the MotoGP world championship, for the factory Ducati Team. He won the 125cc World Championship in 2004.

Dovizioso remained at Ducati for a third successive season, where he was joined by fellow Italian rider, Andrea Iannone, who moved from Pramac Racing. He took the first pole position of the season in Qatar, out-qualifying the rest of the field by 0.2 seconds.[11] In the race, he started well and battled with the factory Yamahas of Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo. He finished in second place behind Rossi,[12] taking his first podium since the Dutch TT in June 2014. Team-mate Iannone finished just behind in third place, giving the factory team their first double podium finish since the 2010 Aragon Grand Prix. In the following two races, he finished in second position; he had a total of five podiums during the season, and finished seventh in the championship.
