"The new bike is competitive," added Andrea Iannone, who would go on to say that, "This season we need to meet the expectations. Time goes by and we cannot postpone the results. Last year we improved progressively, and I feel strong, but I'm humble and I always try to learn from the other riders. From Andrea , for example, I learned the consistency. What can I learn from Casey Stoner? He is a great champion. Our riding style is similar, in the way that we are instinctive. I'm happy that he is the Ducati test rider and I would be happy if he decides to return racing."
