Just gotta rant to get this off my chest. Apparently it's being proposed that there will be a control tyre rule for MotoGP, meaning a single tyre supplier. This, to me, just smacks of a knee-jerk reaction. For about the last 20 years Michelin have utterly dominated the premier motorcycle racing class, so much so that it's almost become a given. Want to win in MotoGP? You need to run Michelin tyre. Now, for the very first time in a very LONG time, we have a different tyre manufacturer in the lead. Now, to put this into perspective, Michelin shod bikes still hold positions #2 and #3 (and #8/#9) in the championship, so it's not exactly a bad position to be in as a tyre manufacturer. About the only thing that's different this year is that it's not Michelin on top. It seems that this is too much for some people. Now there's a strong push to have a control tyre to make racing "fair". Heck, it was considered "fair" for about 20 years when Michelin shod champions dominated, but NOW it's not fair when the two most current Michelin shod champions are outdone by a Bridgestone shod rider? Politics? Knee-jerk reaction? Dummy-spit?
