GP Week : Issue 30
>>MOTOGPCHAT What’s your best night out? Do you go clubbing? No. A good dinner with good company – friends, or a girl. Some drink, a little dancing … but not too much. Do you like a drink between races. I don’t like –because if I drink then I feel guilty. You drink, you go to sleep late, you are tired, then you can’t train 100 percent. I don’t like feeling guilty. Sounds like a normal hangover. Some people wake up like that every day. In winter, on holiday, no races, then I don’t feel guilty. But in the season, no. Anyway, I don’t like drinking too much. Finally, back to the racing. We seem likely to get a single tyre rule. What do you think? I think we are in racing, racing is many riders, many bikes, many tyres. It’s good: Bridgestone, Michelin, Dunlop. Even Pirelli. But we can decide nothing. What will happen we must accept. But if it’s monotyre, I think the rules must be very good and very clear. Because it’s not the same … different bikes can adapt to the tyres, but the riders’ dimensions cannot adapt. We are five or six riders very small, and others very tall. Valentino uses a hard rear casing. Me, Pedrosa, Dovizioso, cannot use the same tyres as Valentino. Then the tyre cannot be the same for everybody. This is the most difficult point of the new rules. Maybe you smaller guys should carry some ballast to make the weights equal. If we can make some parts of the bike lighter, then put weight in other parts that will improve weight distribution … then yes, I agree. (laughs some more) 19
