The FIM submitted a provisional suspension for Iannone under the Article 7.9.1 of the 2019 FIM Anti-doping Code (CAD). So, from December 17th 2019 Iannone is banned to race in any motorcycling competition. He can request lifting the provisional suspension until the decision is final. "I'm totally relaxed, and I want to reassure my fans and Aprilia Racing. I am open to any counter analysis in a matter that surprises me, also because – at the moment – I have not received any official communication,” the Italian said on Instagram.
"Over the years, and also this season, I have undergone continuous checks, obviously always proving to be negative, which is why I have every confidence in the positive conclusion of this affair."
