Andrea Iannone joins Suzuki

Suzuki Motor Corporation is pleased to announce the agreement with Andrea Iannone as a Factory rider of Team Suzuki Ecstar for 2017-2018.
The Italian will ride the Factory GSX-RR in the MotoGP™ World Championship for the upcoming two years following the 2016 season.

Iannone was born on August ninth, 1989 in Vasto, Southern Italy. He started racing in the Italian and Spanish Championships in 2004 when he was 15 years old. He moved to the 125 World Championship in 2005, winning four races, before he stepped-up to Moto2™ in 2010; always finishing in the top-three places in the Championship and winning eight races. He moved to MotoGP™ in 2013, and in 2015 – his third season - secured fifth place overall, recording one pole position and three podiums.

Davide Brivio – Team SUZUKI ECSTAR Team Manager: “We are happy to have enrolled Andrea in our Team for the next two years. He is one of the top riders in MotoGP™ and he is also very passionate and motivated; which fits into our racing philosophy. Our technical project is continuously improving since our debut in 2015 and we are working hard to make our GSX-RR very competitive so that it can fight consistently close to top and victory as soon as possible.

We wanted a rider that could help Suzuki continue its road to the top. Andrea is a fast rider who has the hunger for success and his riding style could suit our machine’s characteristics, therefore giving us good hopes for a positive partnership. Being in his fourth year in MotoGP™ he’s also an experienced rider from which the whole Team will benefit.”

I'm sure they are bummed that Vinales left. They will have to pad their spare fairings budget for next year :)

I guess it was all kinda clear when Pedrosa announced he'd stay at Honda.
Curious to see Iannone on the Suzuki though, hit or miss :P

Yeah,curious to see too. Not optimistic, but I do want to see what happens. Who knows, the bike-rider combo could plain work. It did for Roberts at Suzuki a while ago.
