This Tuesday the world of MotoGP was totally shaken by the news that Andrea Iannone was suspended for four years after taking anabolics. According to Iannone himself, this intake was caused by contamination in food during the 2019 Malaysian GP. That is why the team Aprilia and his partner Aleix Espargaró gave their support.
After the news of the case, Aprilia officially showed its support for ‘The Maniac’. Massimo rivola, the Italian brand’s team manager gave his corresponding statements after the sanction. “The rulings are respected and accepted, although many elements of this decision arouse perplexity, even from the purely scientific side,” Rivola began his defense.
Also, they criticized the way Aprilia was targeted. “This story has seriously damaged Aprilia Racing and our strategy for this and next season. We have to look forward, we have the task of finding a high-level solution that marries the project that Andrea started and that allows us to continue with our growth, which exists and is evident, “they said from the team.
Moreover, his teammate Aleix Espargaró, gave his discharge on social networks. “We have had our disagreements, but honestly, Andrea Iannone and I have always had a good relationship on a personal level. The 4-year sanction seems super disproportionate to me and makes me very sad. All the strength in the world, my friend, “said the Spaniard.
After the sanction, Iannone also made his discharge on social networks. Today I have received the worst injustice that I could have ever imagined. They ripped my heart out, separating me from my greatest love. This accusation accompanied by incorrect facts does not make logical sense. There will be an appropriate time and place for this. Because I’m certainly not giving up, ”said the Italian.
