Bridgestone confirms BAR switch to Michelin

In a bizarre press release Bridgestone Motorsport has confirmed that it will not be supplying the Lucky Strike BAR Honda team next year. The two parties have agreed terms to settle the year that was outstanding in their contract and Bridgestone will cease supply immediately.

"We wish them luck in their future endeavours," said Bridgestone Motorsport's Hiroshi Yasukawa, although that view may change if BAR begins to threaten the Bridgestone shod teams at the front of the grid.
