MotoGP: Michelin: front tires and weather, important for Misano GP

Share


The Misano circuit puts a strain on the front tires and Michelin technicians know this well. 4,226 meters long, with a very technical design, 10 right-hand turns and 6 left-hand turns, some of which are very fast. As usual, MotoGP riders will have three different compounds (soft, medium, hard) with a symmetrical construction for the front tires and asymmetrical for the rear.

Soft and medium rain tires will also be available.

Since the track was resurfaced, the grip level seems more constant, but the two race weekends here in Misano last year were characterized by rain, and that didn’t give the teams enough time to set up for dry conditions in the races,” Michelin Manager Piero Taramasso recalled. “I hope that this early date in the calendar offers us better and more constant weather conditions, allowing them to get the best out of our tire supply for 2022.”

In line with the Michelin Group’s All-Sustainable  strategy, and to highlight and illustrate the progress made in terms of sustainability, we’ll provide our specially designed and more sustainable tires for the two MotoE races this weekend,” he continued. “These tires will offer constant grip and warm up quickly. Factors that will offer fans an exciting finale for the end of the MotoE 2022 season.”
