There is no getting away from it - tyres are now the limiting factor of any MotoGP bike's performance and their construction and durability are no longer relevant to us mere mortals. I want to see who makes the fastest bikes, I want to see which riders are the most skilled and tactically savvy. I really don't want to see winners and fallers decided by the team's choice of tyre compound. Given that the championship allows only one tyre manufacturer I'd like to see them bring one front and one rear spec tyre to each raceand have the teams do the best they can with what they are given. Riders would then all have to ride within the capabilities of identical tyres. I would even suggest that the tyres used for for qually should be used in the race. I really think it is time that tyre compund selection has far less influence on race results.
