Bibendum is cool, but not nearly as attractive as the Conti Tires girls.

They were probably out of their operation range in general.

It was silly cold that night, probably more so than they intended.

It was "cold" for the natives.

It actually kinda sucked because of the rain, but the actual temps didn't really bother me.

And for tires, too.

Cold, wet and wind can be handled individually - mix any two and I don't like!

Sure, cause Continental knows how much money Michelin is pumping into the series...

It's just another business decision, I see nothing wrong with that. At least the blue & yellow/white stickers put on cars will look better than the pale orange ones.

No but Imsa knows what continental was paying, wanted to pay, and what Michelin will pay.

The decision was not based on money, because we would be reading different headlines if it was.

This is the most important aspect of the entire switch--I cannot believe it took this long to bring it up.

We need to petition the series to demand "Michelin Maidens" or something.
