MotoGP, Iannone: “With the Suzuki I am unable to brake effectively"

Andrea: “I was about four tenths faster than Petrucci and Miller, but I couldn't overtake. At the start, the bike was even about to switch off"


The Grand Prix of Thailand held disappointment for Andrea Iannone. The Italian rider’s expectations were rather different, in fact, but instead, the Suzuki rider had to settle for an eleventh-place finish. His race was marked from the start and then The Maniac’s problems hounded him throughout.

“It’s a pity about the start – Andrea began – The bike spun out a lot, which caused me to lose a lot of positions. It was about to switch off, but fortunately I was able to recover from the situation and even I don’t know how.”

Andrea explained in further detail.

“The problem is that in braking, I am unable to be effective with the Suzuki – he said – I was faster than Miller and Danilo. In fact, I was lapping 3-4 tenths faster. Unfortunately, however, I was unable to overtake.”

The Suzuki rider’s disappointment is great.

“I had the pace to stay with the top seven. It’s a pity it went this way.”
