What do you guys think is the future of The Maniac? The crash in the pits at the CzechGP this past weekend is a reflection of his whole season this year. Alex Rins has been injured for the most part, and Iannone has been the lone Suzuki rider. He has complained about how the Suzuki bike performs, and attributes the losses to the bike. Will he be let go, or will Suzuki keep him on?

Being that Suzuki hasn't signed either, it doesn't look good.

I've seen him do some really stupid things on the track as well as say stupid things.
Recently "I'm faster on the Suzuki that Vinales was"
Vinales was always near the front and won a GP race a time or two.
Personally, I think the Ducati horsepower was the only thing keeping him close to relevant if he could keep it on two wheels and not take people out.

The crash in the pits was Aleix Espargaro's fault though, not his. Aleix was punished three places for it.

Saying he's faster on the Suzuki isn't stupid though.
He is!
His lap times and total race times are faster than Vinales was on the Suzuki.
But he finishes 10th where Vinales finished fourth.:banghead

I saw the video and you're right it was Aleix's fault. I just meant that the accident was just another taste of bad luck for Iannone.

And I think you guys are right. He may be out of a job soon, and if that happens, he'll probably be out of a girlfriend too. It'd be nice to see him somewhere in the first three rows for a

change, but I think he is just still hurting from being let go by Ducati.....Lorenzo may see the same fate it seems :scared

Is he being lazy in qualifying?

If you guys saw the race in Misano two days ago, this guy didn't finish the race. This along with the crash with him and Petrucci in England, are other additions to this guy's rough year. Alex Rins, the rookie, is doing much better than him. It must be something mental. Maybe that supermodel girlfriend of his is destroying him behind the scenes. With only five races left, it looks like will be unemployed next year.
