Andrea Iannone returned to the podium today at Mugello with a third place finish in an exciting Italian GP. After a difficult start, the rider from Vasto crossed the line on the opening lap in eighth place and dropped to eleventh place next time around. He then began a splendid recovery that allowed him to overtake Pedrosa for fourth place on lap 10. Iannone then caught up with his team-mate and the two factory Ducati riders put on an exciting scrap for third. Iannone managed to pass Dovizioso on lap 17 and he held on to third place until the chequered flag, setting the fastest lap of the race on the 23rd and penultimate lap. Today Iannone also set an outright top speed record for MotoGP – reaching 354.9 km/h with his Ducati Desmosedici GP on the long Mugello straight.

After getting off to an excellent start from row 5, Andrea Dovizioso finished the opening lap in fifth place and passed Aleix Espargaro for fourth on lap 5. The Romagna-born rider then closed up to the leading trio and, after Rossi’s retirement, moved into third place. After eight laps however he had to give up the position, first to his team-mate and then Pedrosa, and he finished the race with a good fifth place.

Michele Pirro, entered as a wild-card with the Desmosedici GP of the Ducati Test Team, concluded his race in tenth place.
