SBK, Andrea Iannone: "The goal for my future? Official bike and team."

"I have some proposals on the table, but I haven't started to evaluate them yet, will do so after the Misano round. I have some difficulties on this track, I definitely need to improve."

SBK: Andrea Iannone:

The time has come for Andrea Iannone to get back on the bike and take to the field at his home track of Misano. The Go Eleven team rider will have the opportunity to return to racing in front of his fans and certainly does not want to leave any stone unturned in this round, even if the Romagna circuit was not particularly friendly to him in the tests a couple of weeks ago.

"This track has a lot of grip and with the low temperatures I struggle, especially in the last part of braking but, apart from Alvaro, it is like that for all the Ducati riders," Iannone explained, "The weekend will start tomorrow and I will put all my energy into fighting and trying to improve. I will have to do that to be competitive."

Curiosity does not only surround what his performance on the track will be like, but also about what his future will be because there is certainly no shortage of market rumours regarding Andrea.

"I just want to focus on this round, for me it was important to recover the feelings on the bike and in the race. Slowly they are coming back, but I'm still not 100 percent," he cut short the question with his reply.

He cannot deny, however, that many have set their eyes on him. After four years away from racing, Iannone has already shown that he has not lost his edge, and having him on the team would be a plus for many. There are even rumours that Pramac is thinking of him for MotoGP should he switch to Yamaha.

"Once the Misano weekend is over I'll start thinking about the future, I have some proposals on the table, but it's still early to make a decision," the rider from Vasto did not mince his words, "For sure the key point is to have an official bike in an official team, that's the most important thing."
