Iannone ready for Qatar

Iannone ready for Qatar

The Speed Master Team rider reviewed his final pre-season Test at Jerez.

Throughout the Jerez weekend the Speed Master team took part in the final Test before the beginning of 2011 season. The weather conditions across the three days were definitely different from the ones of the previous week, when the team participated to some private tests at the Andalusian track.

Consequently, Andrea Iannone and his mechanics could not use the information previously gathered and, therefore, they took advantage of the sessions at their disposal by trying out various modifications to the Suter MMXI machine. The team’s priority was mainly the motorbike setting, to collect some extra data in case of lower temperature and different track conditions.

“In these three days we tested many things on the bike and we tried to develop some aspects that we had just seen superficially in the previous occasions. We didn’t really focus on the lap time, as we already had some interesting answers during the private tests. We managed to do a complete analysis of the machine reactions and performance, when arranging some specific changes, and the information we got is definitely going to be useful during the season. In general, I can say that this year we had the chance to take part in many tests, and that gives us some useful basic data with which we can deal with the first phases of the Championship. Within a little more than a week, we are going to fly to Qatar and 2011 season will begin: it’s going to be a very interesting year and we will fight to be competitive.”
