Makes sense for them to improve lap times by as much as possible before the new manufacturer comes on board. It'll make them look pretty good if it takes a couple of seasons to match their times

RaceRoad: develop what???? oh nothing i guess then. it aint black magic right its just dumb rubber

SO you think any 'dumb rubber' can produce the results we see currently?
I think it'll be a great lost plus there is not going to be another manufacturer to fill the gap in the short term. So appreciate Bridgestone for their effort. Not easy to produce tyre types to full fill many different highly demanding bikes.

In a motogp programme interview, Marc Marquez said he felt fortunate that he adapted so quickly to the tyres. He said Bridgestone is good, but he wished they could listen to all riders and not just a group of riders.

If they did, amakusa, Bridgestone would have to bring 50 different tyres. Practice would have to start on a Wednesday so that the riders would have a chance to choose.

Scrap Qually tyres altogether, bring just 4....hard, medium, soft, and a wet.
Maybe an intermediate for iffy conditions, if rain is around.
