Today, with the championship now on the eve of its fourth campaign, Michelin are delighted to confirm that we have extended our relationship as Formula E’s sole tyre-supplier until at least the end of Season 7 (2021)
Michelin was one of the founding partners of Formula E, the first global series to showcase all-electric single-seater racing cars. They have confirmed their continued commitment to bringing expertise to this ground-breaking motorsport discipline, while realising it would be a different kind of challenge compared with what they had been accustomed to.
The series is set to herald a fresh chapter with the arrival of a new car at the end of the 2017/2018 championship.
It seems clear that the future of mobility will be electric and, with the the lessons learnt from disciplines like Formula E, Michelin can play a part in the development and introduction of a new breed of increasingly environmentally friendly vehicles.
It is sure to be another spectacular season in Formula E – a championship in which Michelin’s tyres will once again play a central role in the show.
