MotoGP » Rossi calls on Ducati to fix tyre problems

There are some indications (supported by Mat Oxley for example), that this has more to do with the fact that the tire can't cope with the extra weight of people like Baz and Redding, who are on average 20% heavier than other riders. This puts more load on the tire in every situation. The factory dukes have less problems because their riders are smaller and lighter. If Rossi asks for a Ducati fix, Ducati realistically has to fire their heave riders or give everyone a GP16. The latter theoretical fix is what I like the most. Whining Yamaha boys suddenly do not have to fight GP14, 15 and 15.1 anymore but get their ass whooped by GP16s.

MotoGP » Rossi calls on Ducati to fix tyre problems

Re: Codger - APRIL 08, 2016 8:48 AM He couldn't have made his thoughts any clearer......all the other bikes shouldn't be made to suffer because one bike has a problem. ----------- Pramac runs a GP15 which did not have problems with the Bridgestones last year. And the riders have said that the Michelin rear has more grip. So, Ducati has to fix a bike that never had trouble in the past? It's more like Michelin made a tyre that cannot even deal with last years bike in an effort to throw Bridgestone out of the record books as fast as possible at the cost of safety. Michelin look like they are on it, as they have brought a completely new rear carcass design to Austin. So guess who is taking the blame and had made immediate improvements? Michelin. Kudos to them.
