Michelin and Formula E: the partnership continues

In 2014, Michelin was one of the founding partners of the all-electric street racing championship. The French tyre manufacturer has been the sole supplier for Formula E teams and drivers since the inaugural season. This has proved a successful partnership for both parties who have decided to extend their deal until at least 2021.

A bespoke tyre for motorsports

Since the vehicles running in Formula E are all electric, Michelin needed to develop a high performance, energy efficient tyre. This has resulted in the motorsport model, which can be used in both wet and dry conditions.

With this extended partnership, Michelin intends to go a step further and is already working on new tyres to equip the next generation of single-seaters. “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. Formula E Founder and CEO, Alejandro Agag, also expressed his delight at the continued collaboration, commenting “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”.
