Iannone still confused over Suzuki MotoGP exit

Andrea Iannone is still confused over his removal from the Suzuki MotoGP programme after being given only one year in real terms to prove himself.

The Italian had a tough 2017 as a poor decision was made on engine specification and he was given the Spanish archer before the combination of himself and the GSX-RR came good in 2018.

"I don't know and I'll never understand it, is difficult to say. 2017 has been a complicated year for both of us and they made that decision," said Iannone, speaking at Phillip Island.


"2018 went differently, I think I showed a lot, especially when the material related to my requests arrived, the results started to come with both me and Rins.

"I'm sorry because I think that after a difficult year like 2017 I gave some important indications and I made the bike grow.

"There are still a lot of things to improve, but it's no longer up to me to say in which direction we should go. I just work for my weekend. But I think if we had continued together, we could have done more."
