Bridgestone: Racing is a fitting tribute to Simoncelli

"That we continue racing is in itself a fitting tribute to Marco. He never gave up, so nor shall we" - Hiroshi Yamada.
MotoGP's exclusive tyre suppler, Bridgestone, is confident that the championship will put on a fitting tribute to Marco Simoncelli at Valencia this weekend.

“It is with heavy hearts that we travel to Valencia this week for the final round of the season, but that we continue racing is in itself a fitting tribute to Marco. He never gave up, so nor shall we," said Hiroshi Yamada, Manager of Bridgestone's Motorsport Department.

"Marco will be with us all in our hearts and minds, and no doubt watching every step and at every corner, and I'm sure that the MotoGP family will honour Marco's colourful and vibrant life suitably and appropriately, remembering the good times we all shared with him.”

In preparation for cool temperatures, Bridgestone have selected the soft and medium compound front slicks and the medium and hard rears, the same as used last year.

The softer option rear also features the extra soft compound rubber in the lesser-used right shoulder to maximise warm-up performance.

This last race is going to be like nothing we have experienced so far. There will be so many mixed emotions, but I think it is going to be a great day!It will be a day to celebrate Marco's life and everything that he was about - but it will also be the first time he is missed in the paddock and on the grid! We have all to be positive, show how much we loved and admired Marco and support all the other riders, teams and anyone else involved in the event! I don't think anyone will be bothered who wins or what as somehow it isn't really about that - it will be Marco's day !!
