Williams and Michelin

We believe that Williams and Michelin are in the final stages of negotiating a new deal for 2006 and beyond, despite rumours of a deal with Bridgestone. The rumours may be related to the negotiations although staying with Michelin makes a lot more sense than switching to Bridgestone. Williams, it should be remembered, was the first Michelin team in the modern era.

It is thought that Red Bull Racing will switch but that Williams will stay where it is.
