After very high and even too high wear of Pirelli tires, the Italians also officially confirmed the changes. Namely, at the Spanish Grand Prix we saw as many as four stops in the pits, and even that was very critical for some. Tire wear is therefore too great, which is why Pirelli’s motorcycle sports director Paul Hembery confirms: “We never wanted to see four stops in the pits, which is why we will go into design changes. We will take some design solutions from last season and also some from 2011 and 2012. We want to have two or three stops again. "

Hembery added that the teams had made less progress than they would have if they hadn’t looked so much at the tires. Even during the winter tests, it was very important that you pay as much attention to the tires as possible, according to Paul: "Unfortunately, we can only test with a Renault car from 2010. The results obtained in this way do not mean much to us. to various findings from ours. We have to do something here as well. "
