Last season, Honda successfully won 13 victories along Marquez and one by Dani Pedrosa. This season, Marquez recently collected two podiums in the first five series. Dovizioso was more convinced there is a problem in the technical sector RC213V.
"I think this time the talent Marc hide all the flaws Honda, because he is the only one capable of driving fast. So I'm sure this time Honda does not have a perfect balance," said Dovizioso told Crash.net.
Marquez currently is ranked fourth in the rider standings with 69 points, behind 33 points from Valentino Rossi who was at the top. Dovizioso itself is ranked third with 83 points, five points behind Jorge Lorenzo in second. (Cn / kny)

Stoner early retirement at the end of 2012, has been the HRC test rider since 2013, despite hesitation every time getting a contract extension. In the age of just 29 years and pocketed two world titles, Stoner is very valuable input.
"Obviously as a test rider, Casey is an advantage for Honda, a big plus! Yamaha itself has Colin Edwards, which is obviously not as fast and as young as Casey. But Colin has a lot of experience," said Lorenzo.
2010 world champion and 2012 even this hope Edwards can help him like Stoner. "I hope Colin helped us, but for Honda, having as a test rider Casey obviously very valuable for their development," added Lorenzo. (Mc / kny)
