Michelin obliged to take Scuderia Toro Rosso

Michelin is none too happy with Red Bull at the moment, thanks to the recent vote to change the tyre regulations for 2006 in which Red Bull Racing voted in favour of the change, alongside all the Bridgestone teams. Now, however, the French tyremaker has been forced to take on Red Bull's second team because of the rules which require a tyre manufacturer to supply 60% of the field, if called upon to do so. This will mean that Red Bull Racing and Scuderia Toro Rosso will use the same make of tyre.
