Hiroshi Yasukawa, director of Motorsport  tyre development, was visibly moved on receiving the trophy from the hands of Christian Horner, head of the Red Bull Racing Team:

"I am greatly honoured to receive this award on behalf of Bridgestone Corporation. When I first joined Bridgestone in 1972, it was my greatest desire to see Bridgestone become a technical leader through the field of motorsport and for us to become an internationally respected and well-known brand around the globe. On behalf of Bridgestone, I would like to thank the motor racing community for recognising our passion for technical excellence and our desire to ensure that we provide tyres which were safe as well as performing at the pinnacle of motor racing. We would also like to thank the many individuals, teams and companies who have supported our motor racing activities. Without them, we could not have achieved our goals".
