Bridgestone have confirmed that they do not wish to renew their tyre supply contract with F1 after the 2010 season. A statement from Motorsport Director Hiroshi Yasukawa read:

The decision made by the board of directors comes after considerable and lengthy evaluations and has been based on the company's need to redirect its resources towards further intensive development of innovative technologies.
