There is a good chance that the pros and cons are the same or results in the same performance with neither being an advantage for him. He could be letting the team select from a technical point of view what issues may be easier to resolve and then he will just go along with that decision. It is either that or he just does not know what to do and cannot decide. At any rate the performance from both chassis' must be similar hence the indecision. If he went 1 sec faster on the carbon fiber, I doubt there would be any question as to which to use but he also did not have back to back test on the same track for comparison.

re: "“I have been working with both motorbikes so far - especially the one with the carbon chassis - and I don't know which way to choose from now on,” confessed Silva."

flip a coin bro. what you're riding won't matter when the lights go out at dorna HQ, the doors are padlocked, and a "for rent" sign is placed in the window.
