With the news that tyre changing is to be reintroduced into Formula 1 for the 2006 season, I believe Michelin have a point a being somewhat pissed off about it. The point of the one tyre rule was cutting costs and better racing as tyres had to be managed – Kimi at the Nurimburgring wouldn't have happened without that flat-spotted tyre, and Michelin excelled at producing an excellent one tyre race compound and deservedly won all the races bar the Indy fiasco.
I can't help but be skeptical and wonder if there wasn't some pressure from Ferrari to get tyre stops back for next season. The Ferrari / Bridgestone combo had won all titles since Michelin returned to the sport several years, and of course Ferrari, practically sitting in the FIA/Bernies pocket on most issues will have pushed for situations to help get back that dominance.
I just seriously hope next year its not a case of a Ferrari pulling away and the rest battling on behind, granted I am not a Ferrari or a Schumacher fan, but surely true F1 fans want great racing, and all these rule reg changes season after season can not always be helping the cause.
