MotoGP - Suzuki Racing, Tough conditions affect first day in Germany

Alex Rins: P19 - 1'22.642 +1.043 (combined) #andreaiannone: P24 - 1'23.299 +1.700 (combined)

The #sachsenring circuit in Germany welcomed #teamsuzukiecstar with a tough day, with both riders struggling to find a good setup to perform well. The combined classification reflects the morning session, as it was the only one raced in dry conditions, and sees #alexrins in 19th place with his best lap of 1'22.64 and #andreaiannone in 24th place with 1'23.299.

The dry weather in the morning allowed Rins to get back on his bike and look to regain his feel for the #motogp machine. He was able to consistently improve his lap time and start working on the setup. In the afternoon, in heavy rain, he was able to improve his riding skills in wet conditions, which is valuable in the process of his development.

Iannone is still dealing with some difficulties in finding a good feel with the bike, especially when it comes to braking. This is preventing him from pushing the bike as hard as he would like, and the good lap times that should follow. He had a crash in the morning, which luckily did not result with any physical consequences.
