No shit. Chalk up one more reason not to let a manufacturer have the monopoly on tires.

Again, Dorna sucks.

Go ahead, try and fine me.

Not all tires are equal, no matter the manufacturer. I go through a lot of used takeoffs that are the same tire. There are always differences when extreme heat is put in them.
I don’t think people that only ride on road tires understand this.
When people say they hate a tire manufacturer, because an unobtanium, GP, race tire, on an unobtanium bike, with an unobtanium rider, wasn’t perfect, for an extreme 45 minute thrashing, I see that as a knee jerk, uninformed armchair warrior opinion

Lol. Remember when Dunlop sucked, than Bstone sucked, than Michelin sucked, than Pirelli, etc etc etc

The rubber is always blacker in the other paddock

Michelin aint copping it that easily this time;

'There was one complaint after Q2, but based on the immediately available data we note that there was a 20-second slower out-lap than normal for the 2nd run, so any perceived lack of performance could be attributed to the subsequent reduction in tyre temperature and pressure (which we need to confirm later after detailed data analysis) for the single time-attack lap. In addition, the biggest contribution to the lap time appeared to be the loss of 8-tenths of a second in sector 2. Run 1 was similar to Pecco’s first run in terms of lap times.'

Most boring race of the year.

Ridiculous team game by Ducati favoring a rider who lost the title in the 1st half of the year. 55 points to 52, what difference does it make? Italians and their shameful team games.

Fabio is the new world champion.

Actually not so. Bridgstones were pretty much universally hailed as great tires during their years in MotoGp.

Anyhoo...not the greatest race. Rins looked surprisingly good for a minute, Fabio who did not look like he would even be on the podium - did the job. Bagnaia, his run is over. Schmarkels not unexpectedly - walked away with it.

So Miller was slicing and dicing early in the race with the hard rear tire. Then he did what Jack does. If the hard tire was good at the beginning, shouldn't it have gotten better later in the race? Fabio did what he had to do and Pecco did a good job at minimizing the damage but this should be done and dusted.

Millers problem is he overheats the tire, he doesn't wear it out. In that case it doesn't matter what tire he uses.

Bastiannini picks off Mir and Miller on the last lap for 6th. Looking forward to seeing him on a bike that's not 2 years old.
