Andrea Iannone bounces back from a crash in Race 1 to secure fourth place, yet the Ducati rider is eager to begin clinching victories.

Andrea Iannone overcame a scoreless Race 1 and Superpole Race to conclude the Assen WorldSBK weekend with a fourth-place finish in Race 2.

A mishap during Race 1 led to Iannone high-siding in wet conditions, followed by a slide down the field after pushing his tires to the limit on the opening lap of the ten-lap Superpole Race.

Iannone reflected, “It was a weekend of unpredictable weather, which made things quite unusual. Nonetheless, we gave it our all.

“Unfortunately, on Saturday, we made a mistake despite having strong potential. I felt we were stronger than on Sunday.

“Saturday’s lessons were crucial for Sunday’s performance. I believe we ended the round on a positive note, with a good sensation.

“In the Superpole Race, I pushed too hard on the tires right from the start, but in the second race, we finished strongly and were in contention for the podium and even victory.

“Competing with the factory teams is a significant achievement for us. We’ve secured a great result.”


However, despite our competitiveness, Iannone is determined to translate our potential into victories as we aim for a factory seat in 2025.

Currently holding sixth place in the world championship standings, Iannone has consistently shown speed at every round, although he has yet to string together a series of clean results.

Reflecting on his performance after Race 2, Iannone remarked, “I felt good, even on Saturday, despite the mixed conditions. So, the bike’s feeling is really positive.

“At times, we might feel a bit inexperienced because we lack data compared to others. This being my debut year in WorldSBK, everything is still new to me.

“We’re learning each day, and it’s crucial for us to strive for victories. Ultimately, it’s important to remember that this is my inaugural year in the championship.”
