"Echoing the words of Stoner in 2012, Valentino Rossi feels that the real issue is not the compound, but the construction.
“With the soft casing of the front tyre - this front tyre was done for safety reasons, to have better warm-up, but with the 800,” said the seven time MotoGP champion, who has returned to Yamaha from Ducati this season. “Now the (1000cc) bikes are faster and heavier and the tyre is too soft. Jorge has some compliant, but also for me - I suffer more.”
When asked about Stoner's opposition to the tyre and why most riders had appeared to support the softer construction, the Italian added: “I was still with Ducati and I said, 'look, for me, I am in the sh*t anyway!' So it was a decision that was taken."
