Pedrosa to Bridgestone by Indy!!

Growing rumours in the Misano paddock suggest that Repsol Honda's Dani Pedrosa will make a shock switch from Michelin to Bridgestone tyres in time for the forthcoming Indianapolis Grand Prix on September 14!

Whilst there has been growing expectation of such a move in time for the 2009 season, particularly following Pedrosa's brutal criticism of Michelin after its Czech Republic Grand Prix disaster, few believed that such a seismic change could be implemented during an active racing season.

Pedrosa - who has won two races with Michelin tyres this season and was leading the world championship until falling from the lead of the wet German Grand Prix on July 13 - had wanted to join Valentino Rossi in switching to Bridgestones for this season, but might now ride with the Japanese tyres for the first time during post-race testing on Monday.

Team-mate Nicky Hayden, expected to leave Honda for Ducati next season, is not thought to be making the change, meaning that the Repsol Honda garage would - like the Fiat Yamaha garage of Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo - be spit in two.
when was the last time we saw a change like that mid season
You can't blame him though for wanting it, get some time on them in preperation for the 2009 season if nothing else.
