Bridgestone has confirmed that additional tweaks will be made to its tyres before the marque bows out of Formula One at the end of the 2010 season.

It emerged earlier this year that next year's Bridgestone slicks will be thinner at the front in order to produce better handling and less rear wear in the cars' current aerodynamic configuration.

The Japanese supplier has now revealed that additional changes will be made in light of the ban on refuelling for 2010 and the different race strategies that may therefore arise.

"The construction is more durable, and the compounds have also been modified," said chief engineer Jun Matsuzaki.
