Michelin – Aragon GP for Dani Pedrosa was very strange. After winning the Misano GP, the Spanish had big problems with his Michelin.
Pedrosa arrived in Spain with a very high morale. The Honda rider won a great GP in Italy, after a great come back. Also, during the first sessions of the Aragon GP, Dani drove very well. However, yesterday he started fifth on the grid. He was far from pilots who fought for the podium. Pedrosa closed sixth. We can understand why looking the picture of his boots and his front tire. A miracle that it was not totally destroyed.

Michelin, Look the Pictures!
“I don’t escape when there are some criticisms. But today I have a lot of problems.” said Dani after the race. Just look at the picture to realize the problems. “It was difficult to stay in the race. As soon as we started there were problems, both at the front and rear tire. It hadn’t grip.” The Spaniard complained a lot with Michelin.

“I couldn’t have the step of Crutchlow. But be ahead of Aleix Espargaró is already a success.” added Dani. “In 10 laps to go, I started to suffer a lot with the vibration in the front and I had the same problem at the end of the race. Too complicated. Every round was worst. With Cal it was impossible, but at least I won the fight against Aleix. After the great result at Misano, this race was just the opposite.” His sixth place might seem disappointing, but seeing his wheel don’t act like it.
Michelin is Satisfied
Nicolas Goubert, technical director and supervisor of the MotoGP’s program, instead, satisfied with the weekend. The French brand allowed the pilots to make different choices. So, this underlines the ability of the manufacturer to offer pilots tyres to give the best during the race. However, after the race Goubert met Pedrosa and Andrea Dovizioso. The two pilots that had more problems with Michelin tires.
