Assen MotoGP: Valentino Rossi 13th after rear tyre disaster

Valentino Rossi went from challenging for his best dry weather result of 2012 to finishing in a disastrous 13th after he suffered a major rear tyre failure in Assen. Rossi was locked in a battle for fifth position with Nicky Hayden and Hector Barbera when his factory Ducati GP12 developed an early vibration from his hard compound Bridgestone rear tyre. The problem...

Careful who you blame!

Come on Paris, Ducati fans have been so deflated for 18 months now, six weeks in traction being fed through a tube and crapping in a tin pan would be something to look forward to!

I'm not gonna argue about bridgestone and how they are being made look bad by DORNA and what it's doing for the racing, but the day Stoner decides to use a 'soft' on a dry track, then EVERYONE should take a bit more notice of what he's saying about the tyres and their suitability for the series.

Sure, you can blame styles and setup, but the tyre should be able to contain all but the most radical of these. Anytime this happens you got to question Ezpeletas motivation for the change.

Do you, or anyone, know if Dorna had/still have financial connections to Bridgestone, if so this points to why Bridgestone and definitely not any other tyre manufacturer. For me, all the ruling bodies are untrustworthy around MotoGP.

Bob Casey had to use the soft tyre because he couldn't make the hard work, he had no fucking idea the compound(not the new construction) was going to disintegrate in the race..

Yeah mate!

Rossi has been contracted to Bridestone as their 'Motorcycle Tyre Development Advisor' since around March last year. As Ezpeleta is Flo's unofficial manager, that's close enough for me!

Hugey, you are one ignorant motherfucker but at least you're consistent! Unfortunately, all facts point to you being in possession of half the facts... to go with your half a fkn clue!

There's clearly something badly wrong when soft (strictly medium) tyres are lasting longer than hards. I've heard some comment that if riders were doing race simulations in practice they would have known there was a problem with the hard tyres, but for me when dealing with a control tyre the riders should be able to expect consistent behaviour. That includes a hard tyre lasting longer than a soft. Oh and while we're at there is no new compound. Bridgestone changed the CONSTRUCTION of the front tyre, not the compound. And yes it was only the front. So the tyre changes should not affect the rears at all.

Too funny

"Rossi has been contracted to Bridestone as their 'Motorcycle Tyre Development Advisor'"

I'd knew he was on the Bridgestone payroll, but I just assumed it was for promotion.

So not only has he developed the Ducati from race winner to CRT fighter, he's gone and fucked the tyres too.

Hahahahaha.  What a corrupt joke this sport is devolving to.
