"@Tetley Correct me if I am wrong, but wasnt there more highsides and crashes after the tyre change last season. Posted by Catch Up”.
My point exactly. The change did not achieve the required effect, therefore the subsequent change was all the more necessary, albeit at short notice for the teams.
Even all the hitech gizmos couldn't stop the damage and injuries with the slow-to-warm-up tyres, so it was essential to introduce improvements as soon as possible, even though it may inconvenience some teams.
Bottom line is that Nakamoto rated losing a couple of 10ths more important than improving rider safety.
