After an adjustment period this change worked well for Rossi, the Pedrosa situation is near identical and with Hondas commitment this will be facinating.

The plan is proabably to push development and make some head way for 2009. I don't think they expect much from 2008 now...

I agree, a good idea in my opinion.

I agree completly, Rossi took 3 races at the start fo the season to fully understand stones if rossi had few races in 2007 season on stones, championship would have been done and dusted by now becasue those were the races when stoner was struggling with his ducati apart from qatar.

Rossi's m1 pretty much had to be turned upside down to get it working with the bridgestones, setting up that rc212v to work with the tyres is gunna require a lot of commitment from both rider and engineers.. it wont happen over night. It was only 3 or 4 races into the season that rossi said he felt that him and the team fully understood the bridgestones.

But like you say, probably a smart move.. he's championship contention is over, so why not spend the remainder of the season getting valuable data for next season.

I guess that means the guys left on Michelin's are screwed.That pretty much signals the end of Michelin in Moto GP and development will come to an end for the rest of the season.I was against a one tire supplier because i thought Michelin would fight back after what happened to them in F1.In retrospect,expecting something French to fight back was stupid on my part.

I was expecting outraged comments on Pedrobot flexing his 'muscles' to force his way to bridgestones, (and managing the switch mid-season, even!) but it seems a certain kind of outrage is reserved to Rossi only, isn't it... [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.gif[/img]

Despite the mild controversy surrounding Rossi's tyre switch i think most people understand that Rossi did nothing wrong, and as a competitor he will always do anything he can to gain an advantage. The fact that he was able to do what he apparently did is the fault of the organizations who let it happen, and is a testement to Rossi's achievements in the sport and his ability to build relationships.
