Two years ago Bridgestone had a big problem with the "safety" of their tires in MotoGP. It was not remedied until the beginning of the next season, as I recall. Now they rush new spec tires in the 1st third of the season with Dorna's blessing, and very limited testing by the teams, when there were no complains concerning the "safety" of the tires they started the season with. One might ponder that "manipulation" may have a very similar translation to "safety" in Japanese.

As a single supplier series MotoGP should be consistant in how new tires are introduced. It isn't a popularity contest. At the beginning of the season all the teams were working on the spec tire. Now, one team isn't, actually more as unsafe tire chattering problems are not only being experienced by Repsol riders. Of course if you think it's OK to hobble some riders to be benefit of others that is something else.
