After a positive test held on Monday in Brno, Andrea Iannone is headed to Austria for the back-to-back race weekend.
Andrea Iannone was feeling positive about his GSX-RR after the day of testing, with some setup improvements that might prove useful in Austria.
Additional testing was done in Brno, especially concerning Evolutions parts in the engine that will be introduced in 2018 as per the official rules.
The Austrian circuit is one that is much celebrated by Andrea Iannone, who won his first race here in MotoGP last year, and is looking forward to enjoying the very fast straights and corners of the Spielberg ring.
“I want to forget the bad luck of the race in Brno as soon as possible, and the test we did on Monday helped in this,” he said. “We did constructive work, finding some solutions that I believe can help me here in Austria.”
“The setup improvements give me more confidence on the GSX-RR and it is paying off in terms of lap time. It's good that we go back-to-back, now in Austria, keeping the positive momentum we have for the test.”
“The circuit in Austria is fascinating in and of itself, but it also has a special emotional value for me, as it's the place where I won my first race in MotoGP. This is a yet another push for me to have a positive race this year.”
