AT MOTEGI IANNONE CROSSES THE FINISH LINE IN SIXTH POSITION.

The race at Motegi was an unusual one for the Pramac Racing Team. Andrea Iannone administered well his qualifying result, starting and finishing in sixth position. Yonny Hernandez has fought for tenth place but at the last corner of the last lap Aleix Espargarò literally hit him down.

Andrea Iannone was the author of a good start thanks to which he was able to move up into fourth place. After a few laps Andrea was overtaken by Marquez and Pedrosa, moving  back to sixth place, which he held on to until the end of the race. The GP14.2 proved it’s better performance during the hole race compared to the previous version. Andrea’s only regret is that in the first part of the race   he did not have a good feeling with his bike and was not able to fight with the lead group. This is one of the goals that Andrea wants to achieve in the last three events of the season.  

Andrea Iannone (Pramac Racing) “From the start of the race I didn’t have a good feeling with the bike entering the turns and my bike’s acceleration wasn’t also perfect. After a few laps my feeling improved and I was able to push and keep a good pace. Too bad, we could have done better in the early stages of the race and finish closer to the front group."
