Michelin has been successful in the tender process instigated by the FIA (Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile) with a view to providing the FIA Formula E Championship with tires and associated services. This means that the French firm will continue to be the championship’s exclusive supplier until the end of the 2018/2019 season.
“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,” says Pascal Couasnon, Director of Michelin Motorsport. “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. Indeed, the tire we designed for Formula E - the MICHELIN Pilot Sport EV - is revolutionary in the world of motor racing and has been acclaimed by all the championship’s drivers and teams.”
“The FIA stipulated this ability to perform just as well on a wet surface as a dry one in the tender brief,” notes Serge Grisin, Manager of Michelin’s Formula E program. “What started out as an innovative feature of the MICHELIN Pilot Sport EV tire has gone on to become a prerequisite demanded by the sport’s ruling body. This is a further sign of Michelin’s pioneering spirit.”
