Rossi’s spe­cial rub­ber

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

With ref­er­ence to re­sponses to my let­ter on Valentino Rossi. The ‘spe­cial tyres’ did not re­fer to him want­ing the same tyres as Casey had on the Du­cati (al­though he put pres­sure on Dorna to sup­ply him, which in­ad­vert­edly gave us the con­trol tyre rule we are stuck with to this day). They re­fer to the spe­cially shipped-in tyres from Miche­lin that ONLY he re­ceived af­ter free prac­tice and qual­i­fy­ing in the early to mid-2000s. Alan Oliver, email
