Andrea Iannone marked his move from Ducati to Suzuki for his first test on the GSX-RR at Valencia with a new one-off helmet design…..that was all about moving house.
The design was black and yellow on his AGV Pista GP helmet and it featured various icons and logos that you might see on a removal firm, complete with a ‘this side up’ arrow on the rear, a removal truck with the number 29 on it, and icons of removal men on the sides. The word ‘Traslochi‘ features on the front which is basically Italian for ‘removals’.
Iannone did well on his first outing for the factory Suzuki team and finished his first day of testing in 7th place in the overall standings.
“I am very happy because we work without pressure, without stress, to understand the situation and at the moment everything is okay. The guys inside the garage are fantastic and this is very important. The feeling generally is good, also with the bike. We remain focussed for tomorrow. We will try to change a little bit more parts on the bike, but only for experience, to understand the different aspects. It was unfortunate about the crash, but here it is especially dangerous in the right hand corners when the temperature goes down. I came back after the crash and everything was ok. We will try to continue this work and improve a bit tomorrow.”
