Repsol Honda boss Alberto Puig said the Mandalika Circuit was very different from other tracks.

Alberto Puig also denied this. He believes other factory teams also experience similar complaints. He also gave an example of many drivers who fell at the Mandalika Circuit.

He considered the Mandalika Circuit to have many differences compared to other tracks in general. Therefore, Puig believes that Michelin and the factory team should discuss creating relevant tires at this circuit.

“Mandalika is a completely different circuit. It is a track where it doesn’t have many long straights and more corners,” he continued.

“Tracks like this need good grip. You obviously don’t need hard tires on this type of track,” said Puig.

“These older tires have their own problems especially around tire temperature. We can see during the Mandalika weekend, most of the accidents occurred in the first two laps,” said the 55-year-old man.
