Miche­lin fac­ing Sil­ver­stone chal­lenge

Motorcycle News (UK) - - 2016 Motorgp Silverstone Preview -

Miche­lin will face a new chal­lenge next week when they head to Sil­ver­stone – af­ter their only day of test­ing at the cir­cuit since re­turn­ing to the sport was cut short by rain.

But, de­spite the lack of test­ing time, Miche­lin Rac­ing’s Tech­ni­cal Direc­tor Ni­co­las Gou­bert says that they’re not ex­pect­ing to face any ma­jor is­sues that have cropped up else­where this year.

“We know that we’re not go­ing to get ex­treme con­di­tions at Sil­ver­stone. They arise from a com­bi­na­tion of track lay­out and sur­face, and weather.

“We know that the track there is more or less evenly split, the sur­face is not brand new and not that old ei­ther, and while the tem­per­a­ture might not be very high, it’s un­likely to be freez­ing. It should be fine.”
