Yamaha's dominance has a lot to do with Bridgestone making their 'select' tire for Yamaha since 2008. Yamaha's clear domination in (beginning of control tire) 2009,2010 and the tire woes of 2012 (lets change the forumla, and see who doesnt have problems with their tires)are all in part due to Bridgestone BUILDING TIRES FOR YAMAHA. Honda caught up, then they got let go but picked it back up but still have issues, Ducati got left behind in 2009 and have only managed wins with a guy who pisses excellence, and has his way with laws of physics. The control tire is for the status-quo. Its to keep 'the fans' interested. Its not any coincidence Vale is now Brigestone's rep for their MotoGP tire. Changing their tires for Ducati in 2011 and 2012 would have made too many enemies, so Rossi didnt get an easy go on the bike which is worst suited to the control tires. motogp.com/en/news/2013/Rossi+to+continue+as+Bridgestone+Tyre+Development+Adviser
