Do you think they have a back-alley-treaty to steer tire development toward the ducati as part of the continued monopoly?Were there any other bidders or was this a closed door session. They need Dunlop and Michelin and even Pirelli to drive the competition and push the performance envelope.

As I have known Bridgestone is best tyre, but the essence of moto gp is rivalry to speed progression. We were influenced by the move of Vale from Michelin to Bridgestone. Please, Give us another tyre name.

Same can be said for wsb and bsb. It should all be open to any tyre manufacturer who wishes to enter. At least Bridgestone earned it unlike pirelli who entered, failed so bought the championships instead. Only way pirelli can win!

Dunlop have done a very good job and deserve to be rewarded. As far as promoting competition goes, there's plenty of opportunity for other manufacturers to develop in the lower classes.

You certainly don't want the problems such as the Moto2 hard compound (Dunlop) in the premiere class.
