Michelin has renewed its partnership as Official Tyre Supplier of the FIA Formula E Championship and will continue to provide all-weather tyres until the end of 2021.
The tyre manufacturer has been supplier since the inaugural season in 2014 and what stands out compared to other categories is that the tyres can run in both wet and dry conditions.
“After having developed innovations such as the first highly energy efficient 18-inch competition tyres for single-seaters, Michelin will continue its research and technology transfer work during the coming seasons,” said Michelin Motorsport Director Pascal Couasnon.
“Michelin believed in the concept of the championship since before day one, sharing our vision as an innovative platform to test and develop technology for future road vehicles. Formula E is about forward-thinking and Michelin has built a tyre specific to our needs, but also relevant to the everyday cars we drive at home. I’m looking forward to working closely with Michelin until the end of season seven and beyond,” said Formula E Founder and CEO Alejandro Agag.
Work is underway to fit the tyres to the next-generation car, which will make its debut in season five.
