Una pista mai vista non è solo una sfida per i piloti e le case, ma anche per il fornitore di pneumatici, in questo caso la Michelin, che non si è fatta trovare impreparata.
"A track that MotoGP had never used before, and a complete discovery for the whole paddock, with better-than-expected conditions - said Piero Taramasso - A lot of heat in the air (34°C) and on the track (42°C), but also a high level of humidity (70%). All the tyres were tested: 4 at the front and 3 at the rear. The results showed that the Medium compound performed best at the front, while the Soft and Medium compounds performed best at the rear. They should be chosen for both the Sprint and Grand Prix races".
