Sylvain Guintoli is being drafted back into the Pramac Ducati team to replace Loris Capirossi for the next few rounds, and he gets his first chance to ride the bike tomorrow at the test that has been booked at Mugello.
Joining Guintoli in the test will be Moto2 star Andrea Iannone. Iannone will get the chance to ride the MotoGP bike in the afternoon in order to give him a chance to get used to the equipment. It is starting to look increasingly likely that Iannone will make the move up to MotoGP next year with his existing team.
De Puniet will also be part of the test session.
Paolo Campinoti – Pramac Racing Team Principal
“I’m sorry that Loris wasn’t able to be with us this weekend at Mugello. Sylvain Guintoli, an old acquaintance of the Pramac Racing Team, will take his place tomorrow. The test will help Sylvain in case Capirex isn’t recovered in time to race at the Sachsenring or Laguna Seca, but we’re hopeful that Loris will return soon. We’re also pleased to welcome Andrea Iannone, who will test our bike in order to get used to the MotoGP class.”
