Ian­none can’t ‘do a Mar­quez’

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Motogp -

Alex Rins may have been able to come home a strong sec­ond in Sun­day’s race, but it was a less suc­cess­ful out­ing for team-mate An­drea Ian­none who failed to com­plete the open­ing lap. Af­ter strug­gling to find race pace all week­end, the Ital­ian was caught out by one of Marc Mar­quez’s saves at the fi­nal cor­ner.

Run­ning close be­hind the world cham­pion as he tucked the front and then saved it on his el­bow through the ad­ver­se­cam­ber cor­ner, Ian­none was un­sighted by the wob­ble right in front of him, briefly los­ing con­cen­tra­tion. Tuck­ing the front him­self, he was un­able to re­peat Mar­quez’s stunt and crashed out. He was then un­able to restart the bike.
