If you live in a glass house don't throw rocks.
I donít think anyone can attribute a given percentage to any particular part. They are all interlinked. I remember Tech 3 having a very bad year the year after the switch to Michelin and they attributed that to a bike that was built around the Bridgestones. Same story with aero, swing arms etc. they are all designed to compliment the handling characteristics of the bike with a given set of tyres.

If you take a 2018 MotoGP bike and shod it with some 2015 Bridgestones, I am fairly certain the handling would be unpredictable.

I hope Pirro is ok but from how long it took to move him and get him off the track it's doubtful he will be taking any further part of the weekend.
