Andrea Iannone has missed out on multiple races this season owing to injuries. Now, the Italian rider is set to make his comeback at the 2016 Malaysian GP. Iannone's return has been confirmed by Ducati Factory Team.
Hector Barbera has stood in place of Andrea Iannone in the last few races. The Italian rider for Ducati had sustained a fracture to his vertebra. A crash at the Misano GP aggravated his situation and Iannone was asked to take complete bed rest.
Sepang circuit in Malaysia is expected to suit the characteristics of Ducati. The last win for Ducati at the Malaysian GP was secured back in 2009 by Casey Stoner. Andrea Iannone provided Ducati with their first win since the Casey Stoner era at the Red Bull Ring circuit.
Iannone admits that he is not at 100 percent fitness, however, he promises to put on a show. Ducati will be hoping that Iannone will be back on pace as he returns. Main reason for Iannone returning is that he is impatient and wants to go out with a bang.
For the 2017 MotoGP Championship, Andrea Iannone will be leaving Ducati. Iannone will be joining Suzuki Team as their main rider. The Italian would like to provide Ducati with another podium as he takes his momentum to Suzuki.
