MotoGP, Taramasso: “Today the rider will make a difference, more than the Michelins”

It is a day of racing on the Losail track which, for the second time in two weeks, will today be the scene of the spectacle of the world championship. The MotoGP seven days ago gave the fans an exciting debut race with one close fight for the podium behind the winner Vinales. As usual in Qatar the management tires will make the difference more than the choice which, according to Piero Taramasso, could be taken for granted, except for surprises.

“For the race there best combination is soft-soft, therefore the use of soft rubber both at the front and at the rear. Those are the tires that give riders the best feel and best possible grip, but someone might even choose to mount the averages which can work at race time but which, especially at the rear, do not guarantee the same level of pure performance as the soft ones. The MotoGP riders always prefer an aggressive choice and therefore I think they will go with the soft ones ”.

As mentioned, with a practically obligatory choice of tires the difference on the track will be made by those who manage the tires better and the key to the race will be all in this particular.
“We don’t expect a huge drop in race times. Last weekend the top five riders managed their tires to keep their pace on consistent times. In these situations it is the rider who makes the difference, it’s not something about motorcycles or tires. Today will be an interesting GP because there are many bikes and many strong riders ”.

Yesterday was characterized by wind and sand and even today the condition seen in qualifying could recur with a considerable decrease in performance on the track.
“Compared to last week, this weekend the riders had to face a change in track conditions with wind, sand and temperatures. This made it happen difficult to be constant like last weekend and have the same performance. In any case, we have a lot of data from the tests and from the first race ”.
