FIA Announces Formula One Tire Supplier

by F1Fan on June 23, 2010

In a press release today the World Motor Sport Council announced that Pirelli had been selected as the exclusive tire supplier to Formula One.

Pirelli has been selected as the single tyre supplier for the FIA Formula One World Championship for a period of three years, commencing in 2011. The sole supplier will undertake to strictly respect the sporting and technical regulations implemented by the FIA.

No doubt the teams are relieved that a tire supplier has finally been selected, this decision should have been made months ago, and has been dragging on with seemingly no end in site. So, today’s announcement was a pleasant surprise, however depending on the final diameter of the tires that will be supplied by Pirelli it may well have major implications in chassis design for the 2011 season. Hopefully more dtails will emerge over the next few days.
