GP Week : Issue 35
>>Moto GPInsight the wear rate, but also we have to consider about consistency of the performance from the new tyre to the almost-worn-out tyre. What will the change in lap times be? How much slower? TU: I think not so much different. We already made the tyre for next year to reduce maximum grip. So that will affect the lap time, but I can say this is less than one second Actually during the corner, the new tyre will lose the maximum grip. So that means from entry to exit they will lose the time. On the straight, no different. Will control tyres make electronics more important? TU: Yes, I believe so. Everybody has the same spec, so the most important thing for next year is how to use the tyre correctly. That means from electronic and chassis design. Most important things. Some bikes, like Suzuki and Kawasaki, might not suit the new tyres, and they might need chassis design changes. Will you be able to help them? TU: It depends on the machine testing dates. We can supply the tyre for machine tests as requested. For non-GP riders. The GP riders will have a fixed limit of the testing, with tyres free of charge. But for test rider, they can test, and buy as many tyres as they want. 47
