Suzuki announces Iannone for 2017

only minutes after Yamaha announces Vinales twoyear deal

ECSTAR Suzuki have announced that Andrea Iannone will join the team after signing a two-year deal switching from Ducati.

Just moments after Yamaha announced the signing of Maverick Vinales, Ecstar Suzuki confirmed that they had picked up Iannone after Ducati chose Andrea Dovizioso to remain in the team alongside their new signing Jorge Lorenzo.

Davide Brivio, Team Suzuki ECSTAR Team Manager, has said: '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.'

In addition to the signing of Andrea, Suzuki have also confirmed that they will be parting company with Vinales at the end of 2016 as Yamaha have announced a new two-year deal with the Spaniard.
