Iannone: “It was incredible”

Iannone: “It was incredible”

Ducati Team’s Andrea Iannone can't hide his delight after securing his best-ever finish in a MotoGP™ race at his home Grand Prix in Mugello.

Iannone scored his best-ever finish in MotoGP, taking the runner-up slot in the TIM Italian GP held at Mugello. The Ducati Team rider, who started from pole position, rode a great race on the undulating Tuscany circuit to take the 20 points for second. Thanks to this result, Iannone has now moved into fourth place overall in the standings with 81 points.

Andrea Iannone: “I am so pleased with today’s result: it was incredible, because today it was not easy to score a podium finish. My team did a great job, the bike worked really well and the Clinica Mobile gave me a big hand throughout the weekend. This GP15 is a really great bike, and I was able to administer the race really well. At the start I wanted to try and stay with Jorge: he didn’t have a better pace than me, but he did manage to keep that pace by taking fewer risks. When I realized that I was pushing too hard, I tried to maintain my speed, do my own race and keep one eye on my shoulder, which from mid-race onwards was showing signs of tiredness. I want to thank everyone because this is the result of great team-work and is something that we have built up together.”
