ANDREA IANNONE (PRAMAC RACING) "I'm very sorry for how the race went today, I did not want to go like this. I wanted to fight with the second group of riders but in the last corner of the fifth lap I lost the front tire and I crashed. Considering my pace that was similar to Dovizioso, I'm sure I would have had the chance to fight for a position in the top eight ranking. Now we have to wait for the GP at Le Mans that should be a more favorable track for our bike."Published on : May 3 2014
