Well, only for the Jerez test in December but nevertheless it is a sign that FIA is seriously considering bringing them back.
Slick tyres were expected to return for 2008 season but the plans were ditched without much explanation. This test will be aimed at collecting the data before the possible 2009 return of slick tyres.
Statement from Bridgestone:
“Bridgestone are supplying these tyres as a response to a request from the teams and the testing committee, as the teams want to gain data as they look to the 2009 season.”
The tyres are believed to be similar to those Bridgestone supplies to the GP2 series.
It is hard to believe that Max Mosley and FIA are actually taking some steps to improve the racing …

2007 McLaren Screensaver
48 hours passed and Flavio still has no news to announce. According to Alonso’s manager Luis Garcia Abad, Alonso will take time before he makes up his time and “will decide when he knows the best option for his future”.
The rumours coming out of Renault suggest that the talks have stalled. While Briatore would be willing to accept 1 year contract with Alonso, Carlos Ghosn, the Renault CEO allegedly says firmly “It is 3 years of nothing.”
In the meantime the Toyota and Red Bull rumours are still alive and kicking and Alonso seems to be acting like he has lots of options to choose from.
The other piece of information that appeared is that Nico Rosberg still may find himself racing for McLaren next year. German press reports that Frank Williams would be willing to accept around US$22 million from McLaren for Rosberg’s release. At the same time, Willy Weber, Michael Schumacher’s manager, advises Rosberg not to do it. He warns “McLaren could very quickly destroy his career, Hamilton is their number one, even if officially they will not say it.”
This season did not work out the best for the mighty McLaren-Mercedes team. But still, their cars were awesome and the drivers Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton did not do too bad either. For the McLaren fans, here is the 2007 McLaren Screensaver.
