Andrea Iannone (Pramac Racing) "Today was difficult situation, it was difficult to decide whether to get out on the bike dry or wet tires. Compared to last year I found myself much better in spite of these climatic conditions. Too bad that it took me a while before finding a good pace. I think I could have finished the race in a better position. When I picked up the pace it was about the same as Dovizioso, but I'm glad for this sixth position which is definitely a good result. I thank the team and Ducati for support. "
