Iannone: “We found important information in Austria”

Fired up for a trip across the Channel - can Suzuki make it two in a row at the British GP?

After a difficult start to the 2017 season, Andrea Iannone (Team SUZUKI ECSTAR), is feeling more confident ahead of Silverstone – the circuit where last year the GSX-RR collected its first victory in the premier-class since the manufacturer returned to MotoGP™ in 2015.

An improved weekend in Austria with a strong qualifying and good pace during early stages of the race saw the Italian cross the line in P11 there - where he won last year - and some further solid testing miles have seen some good improvements for the Hamamatsu factory of late. Returning to the stage that hosted their first win since 2011, Silverstone could be a weekend to bring home some solid results and make yet more progress.

Andrea Iannone: “Silverstone is a nice track that may be well-suited for our machine. Last year Suzuki won their first race at this circuit, so our enthusiasm is even greater. Of course we also have important data from last year that may be useful also for us, despite the performance level overall being different. We found important information at Brno and also in Austria that we will hopefully be able to use efficiently to improve our performances.”
