Andrea Iannone produced another hard-charging performance to take victory in the Moto2 race in Jerez. Here is what the podium winners all had to say about the race.
Andrea Iannone, Speed Master-Suter: race winner
I’m delighted – this is only the third time in my career that I have scored points at Jerez. I’m also very happy with the work that the team did, especially in preparing the bike for the wet race. Once the race started I had to work hard, it was difficult coming through and passing people and I touched a few. But I enjoyed the race -0 that’s what racing is all about. Once I could see Thomas ahead I felt comfortable with my rhythm so when I passed him I could pull away okay.”
Thomas Luthi, Interwetten Paddock Moto2-Suter: 2nd
“For sure it was very easy to make a mistake out there today. We had two days of dry practice and then a wet race, with only a few laps in the rain this morning to find a wet set-up. We had a good rhythm, a good pace, but when Iannone caught me I made a mistake while shifting gears and he was able to overtake me. Then I made I had three or four slides, so I was a little bit scared of crashing. Closing the gap would have been risky, so I decided to ride more carefully. I’m happy with second on such a day.”
Simone Corsi, Ioda Racing Project-FTR: 3rd
“I’m very happy with this result because this is my first podium with my new team and because the conditions were very difficult. We picked up 17 positions in the first two laps and I was suddenly in the lead! I felt comfortable but at the same time it was very easy to make a mistake on such a track. In the end Luthi and Iannone had more than me, so I decided to settle for this place and some important championship points.”
