Pirelli chose for the Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix the “middle” three line-ups with which the teams are very familiar – and are not expecting difficulties this weekend …
Mario Izola: “Last week in Portimão we tested the prototype tires for next year, and now we are analyzing the data collected in order to present the final specification of tires for next year by November 1.
The teams will have to adapt quickly this weekend in Imola. After moving from Portugal, the riders will spend an abbreviated two-day weekend on a circuit that most of them are not familiar with. However, recently a two-day weekend at the Nurburgring was due to weather.
Like Mugello, Imola is an old-school track and riders will surely be thrilled. Finding optimal settings in a limited time will be key. On a very technical track, you have to make several compromises, finding the right balance there has always been a difficult task.
Overtaking in Imola is not easy, the weather is unpredictable at this time of year, so strategy will play an important role. But it must be flexible enough to adapt to changing circumstances. “
