The sixth round of the 2013 MotoGP championship returns to Spanish soil again, this time at the Circuit de Catalunya, not far from Barcelona.
This Catalan Grand Prix is very important for Ducati, which in 2003 took its maiden MotoGP victory, and in 2008 (when qualifying tyres were still in use), Casey Stoner rode a Ducati to the still unbeaten best pole time.
The Energy T.I. Pramac Racing Team and Andrea Iannone will start the race weekend with the aim of continuing the work carried out during the test at Mugello last week, where they had good feedback regarding the lack of rear grip that the Italian complained of during the Italian GP.
Andrea Iannone – Energy T.I. Pramac Racing Team “Finally, after yesterday’s flight cancellations, we’ve been able to get to Barcelona. I have wonderful memories about this track, including my Moto2 win last year. This afternoon we’ll have the usual briefing with the team in order to use and develop most of the data obtained during last week’s test. We’re confident because we’ve found the answers to some problems. I hope to find the proper setting starting with the first practice. We expect a hard job, but we’re ready to do it.”
