tires have been the limiting factor since 2009 when Bridgestone was allowed to dictate to the teams who will succeed and who won't. Control Tire, its not about being fair, its about managing expectations, slowing down the faster guys and promoting certain teams/riders by way of the engineering in the tires. Its a scam, and people need to stop believing that it's fair, because it's really a confidence trick made possible by gullible viewers and tricky commentators. BTW, Dani & Jorge (Marc didnt seem to have any problems) were complaining that the tires were too soft on the compound (saying they were one compound too soft in the preceding races) at Barcelona, last year it was more or less about the construction of the tire itself slowing down the Honda. All though that some how went away after Casey was injured, as Dani went on to win almost every race afterwords... hmmmm. Is it any wonder that the guy whose balls on the brakes and on corner entry is benefiting the most by Yamaha ...
