Another strong sixth place for Iannone

Sunday, 29 June 2014

Andrea Iannone rode calmly and cleverly to pick up some valuable points in sixth place at the Iveco Daily TT Assen.

Iannone opted to start with the wet tyres and was able to keep up with his rivals as the race started, losing only one position on the first lap.

On the second lap it stopped raining, the track slowly began to dry out and by lap six the Italian decided to return to the garage to change to slicks.

He made his way back onto track in the middle of the pack and fought his way past several opponents to eventually equal his best finish in MotoGP™ in sixth place.

He reflected, “Today was a difficult situation, it was hard to decide whether to go out on the bike on dry or wet tyres. Compared to last year I found myself much better in spite of these 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 Andrea Dovizioso, but I'm happy for this sixth position which is definitely a good result.”
