Andrea Iannone 11th in Indianapolis GP

Andrea Iannone ended the tenth round of the MotoGP World Championship finishing 11th suffering from his right arm

Energy TI Pramac Racing Team rider Andrea Iannone ended the tenth round of the MotoGP World Championship, held under sunny skies in Indianapolis, and in front of 60,327 spectators, with an 11th place finish.

The lack of strength in the Italian’s right arm, a consequence of the shoulder dislocation suffered during the German Grand Prix, continues to him to compensate with his body, straining his physical endurance.

Given Iannone’s general physical condition, and the recently completed long break, this was nonetheless a positive weekend, as well as a good start in preparation for the challenging stretch that awaits the MotoGP riders.

In fact, the next appointment awaits in just four days, at the Brno circuit in the Czech Republic.

“All in all, I'm happy because I managed to do the whole race. The first few laps I was behind Dovizioso and Nicky, and I was quite fast. Then I started to suffer physically. My shoulder hurts a lot, and on braking, I couldn’t keep the brake on for too long, as I lacked the strength. I was squeezing the tank with my legs, and I stressed my back to the point that it started to hurt. It’s been one of the best races of the year, as we worked well during the whole weekend, so I’m happy. We should certainly improve the result; we must get closer to the fellow Ducati riders, and that’s our focus for the next grand prix.”
