Michelin hope to avoid middling conditions

Michelin hope to avoid middling conditions

Michelin struck back in the 2007 tyre war yesterday, holding all of the top four positions in qualifying at Donington Park. The British track has always been good for the French manufacturer, who seem to have made a breakthrough in recent post-race testing, and Jean-Philippe Weber from Michelin was on-hand to run motogp.com through their day.

Its been a difficult weekend, but we have been going well in the wet; Im happy because all our riders were fast with wets and also on race tyres, commented Weber.

We brought some improved tyres that we had used in Catalunya as regards slicks. The rain tyres didnt change much, because we are happy with their performance since the beginning of the season. In Le Mans we made a bad choice, but we know that when it is completely wet then we have good tyres. We just have to hope that it is either totally wet or totally dry, concluded the Michelin man.
