Cel - i agree, but will they be close enough to make for exciting racing.. I don't think so...most of the other Bridgestone runners were no where near this year so I don't think they'll be much closer next year.

Don't forget to add some of the Michelin guys into the mix. Personally I have quite high expectations of Lorenzo to be running with the top guys regularly when using the same rubber.
Overall times should drop, not many new records I expect, unless Bridgestone have their work cut out and get it all right within the limited specs they can provide to everyone.

Well.....it seems they''ve got it right, as far as I can tell. To me the most important piece is where it''s stated that the tires will be allocated on a "random" basis by persons OTHER than Bridgestone personel. That should effectively eliminate the possibility of one rider to receive a different specification tire than the others by DESIGN.....in otherwords: FAVORITISM. Such benefactors in the past having been Rossi and Stoner (recent past).

Henri........That's right NO QUALIFIERS!! Qualifying tires were a stupid idea in the first place. Why base "qualifying" for starting positions on tires that ARE NOT/CAN'T be used in the race? It's a waste of time/energy/resources! This change could undoubtedly have an effect on riders....as some riders did better on qualifiers than others.....and some riders usually did better laptimes (further up the timesheets) on race rubber!
