FIM Grand Prix World Championship
Decisions of the Grand Prix Commission
The Grand Prix Commission, composed of Messrs. Carmelo Ezpeleta (Dorna, Chairman), Paul Duparc (FIM), Herve Poncharal (IRTA) and Biense Bierma (MSMA), assisted by Carlos Ezpeleta (Dorna), Mike Trimby (IRTA, Secretary of the meeting) and Corrado Cecchinelli (Director of Technology), in an electronic meeting held on 4 June 2022, made the following decision:
MotoGP CLASS TYRE ALLOCATIONS 2023
It has already been announced that the allocation of rear slick tyres will be modified from 2023. Riders will be able to use the same number of tyres as they do currently (12 per event), but there will be a reduced number of options in order to decrease the number of tyres that are produced and transported by Michelin but ultimately not used.
Currently, Michelin provides three rear slick tyre options at every Grand Prix and riders are allowed to use 12 rear tyres: a maximum of six of the soft specification, four of the medium and three of the hard.
A survey was conducted amongst all MotoGP class teams in order to determine future tyre allocations, and it was overwhelmingly in favour of the following:
From 2023, there will only be two rear slick specifications at each event. All riders will have the same allocation: seven of the softer option and five of the harder option. Michelin will decide which specifications are brought to each event: soft and medium, medium and hard, or soft and hard.
Accordingly, the Grand Prix Commission has confirmed that, with effect from the 2023 season, the allocation of rear slick tyres per MotoGP rider per event will be as follows:
✓ Seven soft + five medium
✓ Seven medium + five hard
✓ Seven soft + five hard
