    After seven years of great collaboration, success and satisfaction, Fausto Gresini would like to thank Michelin for their support and help this season.

    Since Team Honda Gresini started in 1997, they have achieved great results alongside the French factory with a great human rapport of friendship and respect. Together they have scored 46 podiums in the premier-class, 14 victories in MotoGP, 20 second places, 12 thirds and 12 pole positions.

    Fausto Gresini: "After seven years of racing with Michelin it is difficult to break up but as so often happens in life and in racing, paths can go in separate ways in the search of a fresh challenge. At this Grand Prix Team Gresini have ended a long collaboration with Michelin, which goes back to our start. They have been seven years of great collaboration and satisfaction. I want to thank the factory and their staff for helping us achieve great victories and fighting for the championship. With the 2006 season now over we are looking forward to next year and the new 800cc bikes. We take on the challenge alongside Honda once again but with a new tyre supplier. In the chase for the title we want we have decided to try and new way of distinguishing ourselves from the other factory teams."
