Iannone: “Tomorrow will be a tough race...'

Andrea Iannone tempers his happiness at claiming his first career MotoGP™ pole by admitting the race will much harder due to his injury.

The Italian rider smashed the pole record at Mugello, setting the fastest lap ever by a motorcycle around the 5.2km circuit, as well as the fastest-ever recorded top speed on the straight, 350.8kph.

Andrea Iannone: “I am very pleased with how things went today! For sure in my condition, this result was in no way expected, but in the end me and my team did a great job and we managed to improve. For me this pole position is really important because yesterday was a difficult day, one in which I was unable to understand if the bike was improving or not. Today on the other hand we improved a lot and now I am extremely satisfied. My team was perfect and the GP15 went really well, I set the new circuit record and the new top speed record. The only problem I have at the moment is my shoulder condition, because it needs more time to get back to 100%: tomorrow will be a tough race but I will not give in.”
