Iannone: "It’s not so much a question of pain..."

 Iannone: 'It’s not so much a question of pain...'

The Ducati rider finished in fourth place, despite struggling with his left shoulder which he injured during testing in Tuscany.

Andrea Iannone posted a time of 1’47.940 to take his place just outside of the top 3, which is made all the more impressive by the fact that his shoulder injury is noticeably affecting his riding, as the Italian explains below:

Iannone: "I had hoped to be in a better condition but instead I am having to make a big effort on this track, more than I expected. It’s not so much a question of pain, it’s more that I need too much strength, which in this moment I simply don’t have. I am not able to move my left shoulder the way I want to and so I’m losing a lot in the changes in direction, and there are a lot of them here at Mugello. I have to grit my teeth and do my best. As for the bike, I am quite pleased, we knew that the GP15 would be competitive here, I’m just sorry I’m not in the best condition to be able to make the best of its performance."
