MotoGP: Michelin Tyre Tech Notes from Mugello

During FP3 most riders used Medium front and rear, with the remainder running either the Medium front with the Soft rear, or the Hard front for the more demanding riders/bikes. The rider feedback was in-line with that from yesterday. The Medium front is very versatile, and has worked for everyone in all dry conditions so far this weekend. The Hard front offers better stability, but still with a good level of grip. The Soft rear was very good for time attack due to its extra grip, but it could also be used for the race – subject to conditions. Finally, the Medium rear gave good stability and consistency. Tomorrow, depending on the temperatures/weather, the riders will make their choice for the race.
 
There’s not much to say about the tyres from the afternoon sessions due to the changing weather conditions, with raindrops falling during all sessions (FP4, Q1 and Q2).
 
MotoE: Race 1 The race took place in the dry with a track temperature of 26°C. However, due to the variable conditions the track was declared ‘wet’, and the race distance was shortened to 5 laps as a result.
We saw good performance from the slicks, front and rear, with both grip and consistency for all riders. Lap times improved from yesterday.
