Iannone: “My race pace was similar to Jorge’s”

Iannone: “My race pace was similar to Jorge’s”

Andrea Iannone admits it was a difficult race as he finishes fourth at the Motul TT Assen to remain third in the championship standings.

The rider from Abruzzo, who started from sixth place on row 2 of the grid, got off to a good start and was fifth at the end of the opening lap. On lap 3 he passed Pol Espargaro to move into fourth, a position he held until the chequered flag, and he ended the race with a five-second gap to his Spanish rival.
Andrea Iannone:
“It was a difficult race because when you aim for better results it’s not easy to be satisfied with fourth, even if you score good points. In the race I got off to a good start, unlike in the other rounds, but I was not able to run particularly well in the first three or four laps and I struggled to pass Aleix Espargaro right away, so I lost touch with Jorge, Marc and Vale. My race pace was similar to Jorge’s so I could probably have tried to do a bit more. However we have to be pleased and satisfied because we managed to take home the best possible result today. I believe that we did a good job over the weekend, we ran a constant pace throughout the weekend and again we were able to work out the right direction to follow.”
