MotoGP™20 – Asymmetrical tires’ consumption.
Like in real life, tires stress and wear don’t apply on both sides and middle equally. MotoGP™20 will implement these three areas separately and it will reproduce some real-world dynamics down to the smallest details. In each race players will be able to decide the quantity of fuel and which type of tire to use, always keeping in mind that bike physics are affected by their decisions.
It’s clear for every rider, and MotoGP™ fan alike, how critical the tyres’ management is: during the race weekends there’s a lot of discussion about ground temperatures, compound performance and duration, and some tracks can be more punishing than others.
The three-zone tires reproduce some real-life behaviors (and rider’s issues) faithfully. Sachsenring with his never-ending left corners sequence will heat and wear the left shoulder, while the right one will be much less impacted. Right-handed tracks like Misano will be just the opposite, although far more balanced in corner assortment.
In some cases traction will be important, and so the middle zone of the rear tyre. The race tyre choice will be important, and depending on many factors, rider’s style, and his ability to preserve some rubber for the last laps, among the top ones.
