Iannone: “I crashed and banged my left shoulder pretty hard”

Iannone: “I crashed and banged my left shoulder pretty hard”

Andrea Iannone dislocates his left shoulder after a crash testing at Mugello, and will have to undergo treatment ahead of the French GP.

The Ducati Team rider, who was concluding a two day private test at the circuit, crashed at the Arrabbiata 2 corner bruising his left shoulder. Later in the afternoon he went for a medical check in Cattolica with Dr. Giuseppe Porcellini who diagnosed him as having dislocated his left shoulder. Over the next three days Iannone will follow treatment agreed with his specialist, with the aim of lining up for the start of the French GP at Le Mans.
Andrea Iannone:
“It was for sure an interesting test, because testing before a race is always useful, and we were able to evaluate some solutions that during the GPs we find it difficult to do. In the end it was a useful two-day test and I am happy with how I was doing, even though unfortunately today at the end of the session I crashed at Arrabbiata 2 and banged my left shoulder pretty hard. In any case I’m satisfied with the way we are working, especially because the bike is still new and so we need to try different solutions in order to find the best set-up.”
