Honda riders (Dani included) have been saying the Bridgestones have been screwing them for months. Now that Stoner is no chance at the title, the "new" tyre will be more Honda friendly.
Let's face it. Dorna didn't want Casey to win the title then walk away from the sport.. Not good for business really??
Now that he's out of the equation they would love to see Dani win. Two Spaniards fighting for the title.. AWESOME for business!
Untill their cash cow Rossi returns to the winners circle they must keep the punters happy & take the focus away from the CRT hoax.

What a shame, Honda cracked little bit the new Bridgestone,
3 wins in a row, and now "Experimental Bridgestone tyres appear at Brno test". How often they will change the tires to stop Honda?
Poor Dani, before he struggle with nasty Michelins, now Bridgestone makes trouble :(

In any motorsport tyres should enhance the racing not decide the winning machine. Bring in another tyre supplier and watch this discrepency go away as teams choose tyres that work for them. Same crap is going on in F1.

Yeah, bring back the tire wars as long as it comes with a claiming rule attached to it.

Any rider can claim other rider's tires even if they were cooked overnight, teams can switch tire brands on the spot and prohibit manufacturers from only catering to a specific rider. In short prohibit tire companies from sponsoring riders.

the only thing the tire war did for prototypes was allow them to make tires overnight for ehhem "certain riders" to mask the problems with the bike for certain tracks making 'certain riders" and bikes look a lot better than they were... having tires specifically made for a certain riding type,bike,track surface and weather condition is a HUUUUUUUUUGGGGGEE advantage... spec tires work for every other form of motorsports it has nothing to do with the death grip honda/yamaha have on the nutsack of dorna
