Testing of tyre compounds, carcasses, endurance etc. can all be done away from the races and even by testing rigs and computer simulations. Of course racing is a great test bed for real world applications but I guess Michelin, for example, still has a great R&D department and can cross reference data from other racing series.
I also like the single tyre rule and would never cheer a tyre manufacturer. What is clear here is that Bridgestone has a monopoly in MotoGP so not much reason to admit to any mistakes to the general public.
