Moto2: Iannone seeking perfection

"During the few weeks away from racing we have had meetings with Suter to make things even better than they already are" - Andrea Iannone
Second, first and the world championship lead might be a near perfect start to the 2011 Moto2 season, but Andrea Iannone is hoping that recent meetings with chassis manufacturer Suter will make him even stronger.

Although the Italian, a triple race winner with an Speed Up/FTR chassis last year, has delivered on race day at the opening two rounds, his qualifying has been far less impressive.

Iannone put his Speedmaster-run bike just 16th on the grid in Qatar and 11th in Jerez.

"The season has started well for us, so we are very happy. The team is doing a great job and we were on the podium at the first two races, and we know that consistency is so important. But everything isn't yet perfect,” said Iannone, speaking ahead of this weekend's third round at Estoril in Portugal.

“We have had a few issues with the bike in dry conditions, so during the few weeks away from racing we have had meetings with Suter to make things even better than they already are."

Iannone, who crashed in last October's Estoril race after carving his way from 34th to fourth, presently holds a nine point title lead over round one winner Stefan Bradl (Kalex).

It's about who you know in this world. Honestly I really like Iannone I think he's future Moto GP. 34th to 4th reminds me of another Italian, I bet we see him on the podium this weekend and my early pick for moto 2 champion. P.S I bet he would have done better then Toni Elias this year.
