But now here we are, on a brand new season and everything is happening just like last year!
Those are the tires you have so deal with it!
When they where causing terrible and visible chatter on the Hondas last year, everyone said the same, so now it's your turn to figure it out and "deal with it"

Why would Bridgestone supply two equally good tires? You can only wear one in the race. Honda had to deal with NO good tires for it's bike last year so now it's Yamaha's turn to deal with a much smaller problem. Almost poetic justice isn't it?

Azuma makes it clear that the performance of the harder and softer tires at Jerez was so close that only the softer (rear) tires edge grip determined tire choice for the riders in the race. Based on Lorenzo's comments the riders (Lorenzo) actually want more of a difference in the performance of the two tires. The article's title is incorrect according to Azuma's detailed comments.

@ Exposed:

Where does Rossi's name appears in the article? You're the type that posts anyhting without even reading the article. And where it says that Rossi had tyres flown in overnight? Point me to the article, show me proof. You're no better then the Stoner haters up on this site. It's like there's an article about MM, there comes the Rossi fans, and Stoner fans and somehow it gets turned into an argument some high school girls woul have. JLo is the one make the comments. Stay on topic.

The way i see it its like this: Last season was almost completely plagued with low temperatures and a lot of rain before/during practice and lots of mixed conditions in between, also during races. so the tires they had took a wile to heat up and lots of riders ended on the gravel because they where pushing too hard too early, hence the request for a tire change, for one that would reach its optimum temperature faster!
All of the riders (but mostly Lorenzo) praised the new tires even though they also degraded faster, and had lots of "inconsistencies" with erratic behavior when the temperatures raised (remember Assen last year?!?)
