Michelin will be supplying the FIA Formula E Championship with its tyres until the end of 2018/19. The French firm has won a tender from the FIA, the World Motor Sport Council confirmed.

Michelin made the deal for the first two seasons, but has now been able to extend its partnership. No details have been revealed. Michelin currently supplies 18″ all-weather tyres.

“We are delighted to have been selected by the FIA once again and to be able to continue our involvement in this competition, which Michelin helped to found,” said Michelin motorsport director Pascal Couasnon.

“Formula E is a superb laboratory to foster innovation in the field of durable mobility in cities and built-up areas and Michelin is actively exploiting this golden opportunity.”
