HRC to Bridgestone?
Shinya Nakano has recently been given a factory spec Honda to develop with in the end of the season. Is it sheer coincidence that his team are running Bridgestone shod bikes and that there are rumors of Dani Pedrosa not being happy with the performance of the Michelin's?
I think Honda is trying to gather information about the tyres on the outer of the season to be prepared for next season. If not why not give the Factory Spec bike to Dovizioso, with him having certain links with a factory ride next year?
I think HRC want to see what their best bike will do on the best tyres. Next year Michelin are in deep trouble if they lose HRC.
