Renault team boss Flavio Briatore fears Michelin’s departure from Formula One at the end of the year could give Ferrari an advantage in 2007 unless the governing body steps in.

“I believe we need to be worried about that, absolutely,” he told reporters in Spain at the weekend when asked whether he was concerned about the situation.

“If we are all on Bridgestone next year, then if you use them already surely you have an advantage.”

Briatore said the FIA must ensure the tyres Bridgestone produced for all next year were unlike anything they had previously provided to their existing teams.

    He’s going the way of Ron Dennis on this one, I wonder why? Renault have in the recent past got a chassis that’s fabulous on the tyres.
