The World MotorSport Council (WMSC) confirmed Michelin as the single tyre supplier for the FIA Formula E Championship. The contracts will cover Seasons 3 (2016-2017), 4 (2017-2018) and 5 (2018-2019), subject to the finalisation of the corresponding agreements.
Opinion: A contract extension that was never really in doubt. Michelin’s supply to Formula E demonstrates long lasting tyres don’t negatively impact racing. Quite the opposite in fact. Other racing categories would do well to pay attention. Also interesting that the FIA announce tyre supply for this series and yet don’t appear to be the decision makers in other categories.
