Iannone: “I expected to be quick here – but not this quick”

Winner last time out has a positive first day in Brno

After the first win for the Ducati Team since 2010 last time out, the man who took the honours – Andrea Iannone – picked up where he left off in Austria in FP1 in Brno, as the Italian took P1. By the end of Friday the positivity was still high, as only Repsol Honda rider Marc Marquez was able to top the Italian’s efforts. Iannone is happy with the first day and pleased with the Ducati’s pace compared to their key rivals.

Andrea Iannone (P2): “I’m really very happy because I expected to be quick here at Brno, but not so quick. Now our performance is in line with that of Yamaha and Honda, and in some points we manage to make up a lot of time on them. On this track we are only struggling in T2, and it is in this sector that I am losing all the advantage that I manage to accumulate in the other parts of the circuit. But I’m satisfied with the way we are working and how this weekend has begun. For the moment the feeling with the ‘old’ chassis is a bit better and I think that we’ll focus on this for the race.”
