Default Bridgestone in trouble ???

http://msn.foxsports.com/motor/story/5964432

Didnt want to post this in the Briatore post coz this time, Renault actually does seem to have some proof. And I daresay, the other Michelin runners will be deeply interested as well, especially since it's Michelin, not Renault, that will be challenging the FIA.

I dunno if it makes a real case for Michellin! Unless they are able to prove that the substance used was illegal or giving Ferrari ot BS shod teams an unfair advantage this is not going to cause any major problems!

Next time if these people see Ferrari guys wearing black coloured shoes, they will claim that it has been re-engineered so that throttle and brakes are pressed into action automatically...

Actually there exists certain subtances which can be used to get that extra grip.

And this is the reason why Micheline are concerned

Normal working practice for a tyre company at an F1 race or test consists of fitting, inflating and demounting tyres. For these procedures we would not use this type of equipment.

According to our own environmental experts, this type of equipment would be required in the case of products giving off fumes or toxic by-products. We do not use any such substance at an F1 race or test track.

All loosers are suddenly waking up and making really outragious allegations on the people who are kicking their bu^^.... Started with villineuve & alphonso on schumi, then briatore opened his mouth to utter rubbish... Now how could michelin fall behind!
