Today, at International Circuit of Losail, started the new season of MotoGP. The circuit is located at 30 km from Doha, has a length of 5.38 km with 16 curves and a straight of 1068 m. From 2008, the race is run at night in the spotlight.
Andrea Iannone made 17 laps during the 45 minutes available. His round test ended with a 4thplace, the first of Ducati racers, and a great time of 1’55’’996. The “Maniac Joe” made a good job for the first free practice session using many of the references of the last test.
The two rounds of tomorrow will be needed to test the rubber wheels and to continue the search of best general settings.
Andre Iannone “It was a positive round test for us. The motorbike worked very well, even if the track was more slippery then before. I’m very glad that I’m the first among Ducati racers and that I gave my contribution to improve the motorbike. The Ducati is now more balanced compared to other bikes, so we can have fun and think about doing better.”Published on : Mar 19 2014
