Iannone: “There are a few things to improve with the setup”

 Iannone: “There are a few things to improve with the setup”

Ducati Team’s Andrea Iannone finished the first day of practice in Argentina second overall after finding the track conditions difficult.

On a day characterised by cloudy skies and an average temperature of 25° C, the MotoGP field took to the track for first free practice in the morning without managing to set any truly significant times, but Iannone ended the 45 minute session on his GP15 machine in second place.
 
In the afternoon the track conditions improved and the times came down significantly. After several exits with a hard rear tyre, during which both Ducati Team men showed that they had a good pace, the two Andreas then fitted medium compound rear tyres and went out to try and improve their times and guarantee themselves a place in the top 10.

Iannone set his quickest time of 1m39.311s on his sixteenth and final lap.

Andrea Iannone:
“In general, my day went quite well, but we must continue to work the way we are doing now. There are a few things to improve regarding the set-up to get a bit more feeling, and I believe that we can be competitive. The track is in a really difficult state and it’s not easy to find the right grip and the confidence to push hard. Today we tried two different settings and we managed to improve and this in any case is important.”
