Iannone has had a low key beginning to his own Aprilia tenure because he finished 14th from 19th on the grid Qatar, also was the prettiest guy in qualifying in Termas de Rio Hondo.

The Italian reasoned Friday’s running a promising 11th-fastest, however, fought hugely on Saturday because he was just 20th and 18th in FP3 and FP4 respectively.

Iannone said that changes were made into the engine brake, but it resulted in the”exact opposite” to what was expected for, and he didn’t have exactly the exact same feeling with the bike as on Friday.

“In FP4 we’re trying to possess more engine brake to be able to slow down the bike in a better way, but in the end it seems that we have gone from the opposite way,” clarified Iannone, who was outqualified by teammate Aleix Espargaro from 0.830s.

“We make modifications to get one thing and also we get the exact opposite. We will need to know what happened.

“Certainly today I didn’t locate exactly the exact same motorcycle as yesterday and we’re trying to simplify the motives. These are things which can happen in a time of apprenticeship.

“Obviously it is not fine to return, I have never begun last in my livelihood. It is obvious, even from the data, that something happens that failed to happen yesterday.

“The good thing is that behaviour is plainly seen by telemetry. I’m not stressed.

“Tomorrow we can return to yesterday flat, but it is a shame to start past when we could have fought for the top ten here”

Iannone’s teammate Espargaro missed out on a Q 2 area by 0.071s in the first part of qualifying, also so is aiming was a leading eight finish on Sunday.

“We did a fantastic job. In terms of pace, we have the potential to finish in the top eight,” said Espargaro.

“Unfortunately, qualifying complicate things somewhat. On my very final lap, I was very fast, but that I lost a few tenths from the final [sector] and Q 2 gained far from us.

“Tomorrow managing grip will soon be fundamental, in addition to tyre wear, since it’s particularly high here. From that point of view, we’re ready.”
