MotoGP » Frustrated Lorenzo rallies against ‘disaster’ tyres

Gary Rowan:
Gary Rowan: I am still baffled as to why Vale didnt suffer from the same issue as he was running the super soft also, as did Brad.
I find it hard to understand that you could be "baffled" that different riders, with different physiques, riding-styles, bikes and setup, riding their own different race could possibly have different tyre wear results at a track where the race distance tyre-life balance is a known problem. Yeah, baffling.
EDIT by CRASH.NET: Removed poster attack. Agreed. When both mich and BS made bespoke tyres there were very few issues. Once it goes one make and one tyre has to suit all riders, styles, weights, suspension settings and different bikes it can easily go pear shaped for some. I think if you look back over the years of one make BS have done a pretty good job. When you consider the numbers of miles practiced, qualified and raced there's been very f

MotoGP » Bridgestone to run ‘asymmetric’ front for Phillip Island

Spartacus: What I don't understand is why did the tires in previous years were able to last a full race and last years did not. I guess they must have grabbed a bad batch of tires or something, maybe the previous years' left overs!
As someone was repaved and the result was a lap time almost 2 seconds faster than previous years!!!...The new surface caught everyone out including Dunlop... I think we have given Bridgestone a hard time when in fact, with no testing, it doesn't matter who was the tyre supplier the result would have been the same... in the end they had to handle it the best way they good job to 'stone... I think they have done a hell of a job.. We can only hope Michellin even does half as good because they have been out of competition for almost 7-8 years and do not compete in any major riders championship...maybe some endurance stuff but hardly the level of Motogp or WSBK...
You're right here. You can knock Brisgestone but I don't think anyone who hasn't tried the Bridgestone motogp tyres can possibly comment on their performance. The riders were distraught and very worried when Bridgestone announced they're quitting cos they, and only they, know what an extremely high level of performance they offer and they know what a massive challenge it is for any other tyre company to match.

MotoGP » Tyre problems return to haunt Lorenzo

RaceRoad: Why change??? why change the tyre that works for all riders? now exept for bs with new soft in the end, dani rossi pol lorenzo etc all have problems. is this the way for winning now days. make a tire that only suit 1 guy. and it has been at the beginning. then bridgestone had to change due to all the pressure! and now silent brought a tyre that works as it seems again only for 1 guy. this is bridgestone wors year ever in MotoGP! what a S#!T tyre they made! shame big time bridgestone. keep making these tyres and pirelli and michelin wil be very happy selling GOOOOOOOOOD TYRES!!!!!! big big big shame. without any annouchment!
What are you talking about? I think you will see how good Bridgestone are when Michelin do take over. You will then eat this post. Sometimes changes to bikes and tyres have to be made to make them work. If something doesn't work straight away riders complain. They have it too bloody easy these days. Stick them on a TZ750 and then they'll know what a proper bike is.
