Michelin has said that they are reducing the number of teams to whom they will supply tyres in 2006.

Minardi have been bought over by Red-Bull, who want Michelin to supply their tyres as their A team will be running Michelins, and it's only practical for their B team to run the same tyres in order to keep developement costs in check.

along with that don't forget that FIA has said that they want single tyre manufacturer to which Micheline is opposing meaning come 2007/8 we might have all team on one rubber (most likely Bridgstone) and some teams switching might be to get some jump start

as for Williams downhill, don't worry Williams has enough funds to run their team without any sponsers, besides its Frank Williams he must have something up his sleeves
