It wouldn't matter if it were Bridgestone or Michelin, there needs to be competition between the tire makers for there to be any real incentive to build tires that will perform, monopolies breed inefficiency, and limit competition, that is why they are bad for sports in general. MotoGP has a very similar problem, and to a lessor extent so does WSBK, because of the control tire suiting certain platforms and the general trend towards making tires 'softer'. The excuse is to help out the slower teams, but anyone who knows anything about how politics work, its really to 'control' the sport, and to promote certain winners and losers in order to increase entertainment value.
