Williams switches to Bridgestone

Bridgestone announced this evening that it will supply Williams with tyres for the 2006 season. Williams will lose BMW power this year and switch to Cosworth engines next season. Bridgestone supplied the Williams with tyres in 1999 and 2000, during a period of single tyre supplier status.

"It is with great pleasure that I can now confirm that Bridgestone Motorsport and the WilliamsF1 Team have entered into a tyre supply partnership, to commence after the end of the current season," confirmed Hiroshi Yasukawa, Director of Bridgestone Motorsport. "WilliamsF1 is one of the most experienced and respected teams competing in the FIA Formula One World Championship and I would like to thank Sir Frank Williams for his faith in our technological capabilities. Since entering Formula One in 1997, Bridgestone Motorsport has supplied the winning Constructors' and Drivers' Champions no fewer than seven times and we now look forward to working closely with the WilliamsF1 Team to help them achieve their goals in the future."

This was much expected. I'm surprised RBR are staying with Michelin, what with the Ferrari link. Then again, with two teams switching to BStone, Ferrari won't mind as such.

I did expect RBR to switch to BStone, but maybe the Ferrari needs 1 team to give them vital infos about its competition!
