SBK, Iannone: "The future? I have to first decide whether I'll stay in the Superbike."

Andrea and a return to the MotoGP: "The situation changes from day to day. After Misano, I'll decide what to do. Cremona? We ride bikes with over 200 horsepower. Safety is the priority."

SBK: Iannone:

Andrea Iannone filed away his first test day in Cremona with an eighth time. More than seeking performance, The Maniac tried to get to know the track in detail, as he aimed to find the best sensations on the bike, more than a month after the Assen round.

At the end of the day, the Go Eleven rider took stock of the situation.

"This was my first time in Cremona and, consequently, I took advantage of the day to get to know the track,"  he said. "We tried some set-ups, the gearbox, but nothing special. Unfortunately, the weather didn't help us, because it rained in the afternoon. But it's definitely good to be back on the bike. I missed the Panigale V4."

What's your assessment of the track?
"Some adjustments are needed, but this isn't the time to talk about the track. Certainly, they're working hard to improve the track here in Cremona and make sure everything is ready for September. Obviously, we'll talk with the FIM and among us riders, in order to understand what kind of situation we have to deal with."

Is there any area to work on?
"The track isn't bad, but safety is definitely the priority, because we ride bikes with over two-hundred horsepower. At the end of the day, safety is the most important thing and, like I said, we'll compare to get to the best situation."

There's also talk about the market. What can you tell us about your future? There are also rumors about the MotoGP ...
"The situation changes from day to day, because it's constantly evolving, and there are always new things. I think this is normal, not only for me, but also for others. At the moment, however, I think it's too early to talk about 2025, because I want to stay focused on the present. I'll think about my future after Misano. First of all, I have to decide whether or not to stay in the Superbike. The moment I decide what to do, which is whether to stay here or not, I will then evaluate the rest."
