Dani Pedrosa admits an asymmetric front tyre seems a good choice on paper for this weekend's Sachsenring round, but his past experience is that it 'feels a little strange'.

Bridgestone has previously offered the asymmetric front at just two events, Phillip Island and then Valencia last season.

"I prefer not to use it, because the feeling is a little bit strange," Pedrosa said. "On the braking you are using a lot of time the hard [rubber in the centre of the tyre], and when you [lean] it's different, it feels different.

"Here it is a good [concept] because you have only a few corners on the right here, and you need grip, as we can see many times in practice. Most probably I will try it, because you never know if it's going to be an advantage over the other tyres."

The tight and twisty German venue is one of Pedrosa's most successful circuits, including MotoGP wins in 2007, 2010, 2011 and 2012.

"You need to be quite precise. It's a track that you are spending a lot of time on the edge, so you have to have a lot of feeling," he said. "You also need quite a good feeling with the slide control, and Honda has always a good slide control, so we have to see how the tyres also work and the weather.

"We have many front tyre choices in this GP - asymmetric and normal - and with so many left corners and so few right corners it makes the choice very difficult. So it's going to be one of the keys."
