Default Bridgestone Pulling out of F1 after 2010

Bridgestone( Sole supplier of F1 tyres) has announced that they are pulling out of F1 after their contract is over next year. Is anybody is having idea who is going to replace them?

I don't think so that Bridgestone will pull out themselves from F1 as Michelin has been already pulled off its leg from F1 after 2008 season, I think that all the teams will renew the contract with Bridgestone.

No they have confirmed that they intend to pull out. It will be interesting to see who replaces them. There is a feature on this in Autocar this month.

Then I should go and get a copy of Autocar magazine. Association with F1 has helped Bridgestone a lot in brand building excercise. Let's see who comes next.

It would have been great to see the return of Pirelli to F1, but looks like that wont happen either, With Michelin leaving F1 in a 'not so good note' it would be interesting to see who comes up next
