Iannone: “We’ve got a very good, competitive package”

Andrea Iannone finished second on the timesheets after day two of the Qatar test, impressed with his Desmosedici GP bike.

Iannone completed a total of 41 laps and set a 1’55.508 to finish just 0.072s off the pace of the leading rider Maverick Viñales (Team Suzuki Ecstar). The Italian improving by over half a second from the first day as he continues to work on the set up of his Desmosedici GP 2016 machine.

Unfortunately an issue at the end of the day brought his test to a premature end, but he is already looking forward to making up for this on Friday.

Friday marks the final day of official preseason testing for MotoGP™ with the action kicking off at 16:00 Local Time at the Losail International Circuit.

Andrea Iannone: “Today was again very positive: we are working well, getting a better idea of the tyres and the new bike and we managed to improve a bit more on yesterday. We still have to work on some aspects, but in my opinion we’ve got a very good, competitive package at this track, and there is room for improvement. I am pleased with the support that I always get from the guys in my team, and tomorrow we will continue with our work schedule. It was a pity that this evening we had to stop a bit earlier than expected: we wanted to do a long-run and it would have been great to gather some data in view of the race. Unfortunately a minor technical problem prevented us from carrying on, but we can make up for this tomorrow.”
