Williams to switch to Bridgestone

BMW’s purchase of Sauber cast a big question mark on the engine future of Williams F1, and while that doubt remains in the air – with a Lexus-branded Toyota or a Cosworth being the most plausible answers – the Grove, UK-based outfit is close to decide on another important matter for next season: switch to Bridgestone tires.

No official confirmation from either the team or the Japanese tire maker were made, but insiders assure the move is a given. Bridgestone, which currently supplies only Ferrari and backmarkers Jordan and Minardi, is reportedly acting aggressively to increase its squad tally. SPEEDTV.com
