Pirelli did at least one year some special tires for the no1 Ducati team. So much for spec tires..
In GP they develop tires for the riders. A new rider that do hes first year in MotoGP dont get as much help of doing special tires i guess. So Stoner could get "better" tires ( tires made for him directly) from the second year maybe.
When we did run Supersport 2005 with support from Dunlop in a national championship we could choose of 108 different "compounds". And if no one did suit they could do special made tire in minimum 5 examples. We ask of that as the Kawasaki and Dunlop was a bad combination that year. But we did get the same front tires as one of the Hayden did ask Dunlop to do as he also did have the same idea of the problem as we did. That tire did work on a Kawasaki. But no one else then the one with direct support from Dunlop and in a possition to win a championship did get that kind of front tires. In Europe, USA or where ever..
