Iannone: “I had a good feeling with the GP15”

 Iannone: “I had a good feeling with the GP15”

Andrea Iannone finished the first day of practice in Austin in 3rd place overall on the Ducati Team GP15.

The morning’s FP1 session took place in the pouring rain but in the afternoon, but during FP2 the sun dried out the lines and the riders were able to lap on a completely dry surface towards the end. Iannone used a soft rear tyre on his final run to set his quickest time of 2’05.190, good enough for 3rd.

Andrea Iannone:
“I am pleased with how today ended. FP1 this morning was a bit more difficult for me because I didn’t have a good feeling with the bike in the wet. In the afternoon however, I managed to be quite quick with the bike in its dry weather set-up and right from the start of the second session I had a good feeling with the GP15: I like the way it behaves and so I am satisfied with our situation at the moment. Let’s see tomorrow what the weather conditions are going to be like.”
