Not that I don't trust MCN or anything...

But it sounds like Ducati would like to have 2 bikes on Bridgestones and 2 bikes on Michelins. The Ducati/Marlboro team would more than likely stay with Bridgestones, so the Alice team would be on the Michelins. I highly doubt if Stoner would want to go back to Michelin.

I was also surprised to read that Kawaski would be switching to Michelins... They haven't done much in MotoGP, so maybe they thought the change might help.
