Michelin renews partnership with Formula E as official tyre supplier

Michelin has renewed its partnership as Official Tyre Supplier of the FIA Formula E Championship, continuing to provide innovative high-performance all-weather tyres as part of a multi-year agreement until the end of 2021.

As one of the founding partners of the electric street racing series, Michelin has supplied tyres to the teams and competitors since the inaugural season in 2014.

Tasked with creating bespoke treaded tyre, unique to the world of motorsport, Michelin's tyre can be used in both wet and dry conditions - unlike any other motorsport series'. "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. With the partnership set to continue through to the end of the 2020/21 season, the company is already working on tyres for the new-look next-generation car, which will make its debut in season five.

"Season five will mark the start of the exciting next generation of the FIA Formula E Championship, and I’m pleased to see that Michelin will continue to be a part of this journey as the Official Tyre Supplier," said Jean Todt, President of the FIA, motorsport's world governing body.

"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.

Pascal Couasnon, Michelin Motorsport Director, said: “Michelin believed in the FIA Formula E Championship from the beginning and joined this new discipline as a founding partner. Today, after only three seasons, Formula E has become a platform of innovation and communication chosen by the most important brands of the world. The contribution of Formula E to the evolution of the automobile is obvious and Michelin wants to move forward with the FIA, Alejandro Agag and his teams, as well as with all manufacturers, on the path of sustainable mobility. Michelin is therefore delighted to continue its collaboration with Formula E beyond season five, until 2021. Thus, 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.”
