MotoGP » Rossi: We destroyed the front tyre


A single tyre manufacturer is the way to go in modern motorsport ... but Bridgestone need to be able to deliver a far more consistent all round tyre, or they must go. It seems that the tyre problems this weekend were random, depending on which tyre you got out the truck ... which points more to a problem in the consistency in manufacture & then quality control. The operating window & parameters for these tyres are also FAR too narrow for a control tyre. Any control tyre supplier needs to be able to manufacturer a tyre that wont advantage or disadvantage one team or rider more than another ... or else they should make way for someone who can.

Tyre competition only produces the following scenario ... Each tyre manufacturer wants the bike with their product to win, so they pick a single manufacturer / team that they believe can do that, & produce spec tyres for that bike & even individual riders. Every other team & rider in the field has to fit in with whatever direction the tyre manufacturers chose to go in, & are severely compromised compared to the chosen few.
