Iannone: “I will try and get even in the next race”

Iannone: “I will try and get even in the next race”

Ducati Team’s Andrea Iannone just missed out on a podium in Argentina after his battle with Cal Crutchlow, crossing the line in 4th.

Andrea Iannone also had a very good run throughout to finish fourth at the flag. The 25-year-old from Vasto, who qualified on the front row, crossed the line in sixth on lap 1 but then moved up to fourth on lap 3 behind teammate Dovizioso. Iannone was then passed by Rossi and began a terrific battle with Crutchlow and Lorenzo. On the penultimate lap Andrea succeeded in passing Crutchlow, moving into third, but the British rider retook the place right at the final corner and so Iannone was classified fourth in the Argentinean race.

Andrea Iannone:
“In the race we could have certainly have battled for the podium, because we were set up well to be quick and in the end we demonstrated it. Around half-way through the race I was in a bit of difficulty and I changed the engine mapping to try and reduce the sliding of the bike and ride a bit better, but it was too late. I probably didn’t guess the strategy right, and in the end I paid for it. It was a pity because in the final stages I was quicker than Cal, but I arrived a bit long at the final corner and he passed me. In any case it was a great scrap, and for sure I will try and get even in the next race.”
