Some difficulties during the first free practice session, stopped Andrea Iannone to find the right setup to attack the top standings. The Team takes full advantage of the time available between the two sessions, analyzing the collected data to understand the direction to take. The positive response comes at the end of the second practice session, when the Italian rider recorded his best time of 1'34 "277 in the twentieth lap, which earned him fifth place.
Andrea Iannone (Pramac Racing) "I'm happy to have finished this day at Assen as the first Ducati rider in fifth position. It will not be an easy weekend, I still suffer a bit ' on the race pace. There is time for improvement but I still struggle a lot changing direction where the bike is hard to ride and to do it I have to use a lot of force, however over the past year we have improved a lot, we are faster and more constant, this gives me hope for the race.
