For me its a real split. Tamada has proven you can win on the 'Stones and Nakano and Hopkins have proven that they are worthy tires to run up front with. However, it seems to me that they only run really well on hot tracks and tracks with little to no testing time that puts them on an even field with Michelin. For the next two years I believe Michelin will be the dominant tire, but once Bridgestone develops fully they will be just as good if not better. And for Ducati to make their move this early puts favor with them as well as with Kawasaki and Suzuki once the tire becomes in higher demand as Michelin is with Honda and Yamaha now. I would say for this year and the next Ducati may be second guessing themselves and critics will do the same, but once the Bridgestones have developed, I see it as a very good move.
