Capirossi vows to improve safety
Loris Capirossi says improving the safety of MotoGP's Bridgestone rubber is his chief priority in his new role as safety advisor to the championship and its promoter Dorna. The 38-year-old Italian, a veteran of 14 years in MotoGP/500cc and 22 years of racing, retired at the end of 2011 and was then offered an advisory role in matters of safety by Dorna CEO Carmelo Ezpeleta. Capirossi says he has no regrets over leaving the sport, and that he intends to use his new position to help improve safety - with the hardness and durability of Bridgestone tyres his primary concern.
