The 13th MotoGP performance will greet fans at the San Marino Grand Prix, at the end of this game. Several preparations began to be made, one of which was the supply of tires that racers would use.
Quoting from the Paddock GP page, Thursday (12/09/2019), Michelin will carry a ban with a different character. The front, front and back are both soft, medium, and hard compound. However, specifically, the medium and hard rear tires are designed asymmetrically with the harder right side to overcome the number of bends at Misano.
Michelin deliberately provides different tires by adjusting the characteristics of the 4.2km circuit. Besides, the Misano Circuit also has 10 bends to the right and six to the left and asphalt which is quite abrasive against the tires.
So that the French company deliberately lowered the tires differently. As for wet tires, Michelin provides soft and extra soft compounds for front (symmetrical) tires, as well as soft (asymmetrical) and medium rear tires.
This information was conveyed by Michelin Director of Two Wheel Race, Piero Taramasso. He believes the supply of tires that have been provided can be the right choice for the MotoGP circus.
“The race at Misano last year was amazing. The riders repeatedly recorded a lap time which was very fast and broke records. All tire compounds worked well and recorded a constant time for 27 rounds,” Taramasso explained.
“We are trying to repeat this achievement and provide more tire options for racers and teams,”
