Iannone: "I had a problem in my arm"

Suzuki rider unable to make it to the end of the San Marino GP

Andrea Iannone (Team Suzuki Ecstar) had a tough home GP at Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli, missing out on moving through to Q2 and then suffering problems in the race with his arm. The Italian was forced to pull in due to problems with his rain suit, and will be aiming to bounce back from the DNF at Aragon.

Andrea Iannone, DNF: "Sadly I had a problem in my arm. I decided to wear the rain suit for the race, which actually proved to be too tight, obstructing the blood flood to the arms, so right after two or three laps my forearm started to pump and get rigid, preventing me from riding properly. I was never able to open the gas full-throttle, and then I also lost responsiveness with the brake. It’s a shame because the machine was performing well and had good potential. I’m sorry for Suzuki because we could have taken advantage of these conditions."
