The Phillip Island GP was characterized by a high number of crashes, which unfortunately Andrea Iannone was author of one too. It was a dammed race for Andrea Iannone. A Race that lasted only a few laps. Andrea was the author of a good start but in a contact with Crutchlow at the first corner lost positions ending in eleventh place. TheItalian rider tried a comeback but on the sixth lap he involved the innocent and Pedrosa in a a contact and crashed landing hard on his hip. Andrea is very sorry for yet another weekend that ended in a bad way and hopes that the last two events of the year can bring satisfaction.
Andrea Iannone (Pramac Racing) "I started very well but because of a contact with another rider I went wide at the first corner and I lost a lot of positions. Unfortunately when you are forced to a come back you must take more risks. The crash was caused not only by me be braking very hard but also due to the first gear not shifting in. I'm sorry I didn’t finish the race and I'm also sorry for stopping Pedrosa race."
