In a high-stakes battle for the coveted position of the Sole Tyre Supplier for the FIA Formula 1 World Championship, FIA Formula 2, and FIA Formula 3 Championships, Pirelli has emerged victorious. The announcement, hot on the heels of a rigorous tender process, underscores Pirelli’s unwavering commitment to excellence in motorsport. The decision, made after careful evaluation, pitted Pirelli against the renowned Japanese tyre giant, Bridgestone, making the selection process a tense competition between two industry titans.

The tender process, marked by intense scrutiny and meticulous assessment, saw Bridgestone as the sole contender challenging Pirelli’s established dominance. Despite Bridgestone’s storied history as a former Formula 1 supplier, it was Pirelli’s innovative approach, technical expertise, and proven track record that ultimately secured the coveted position. The FIA’s decision to continue its partnership with Pirelli cements the Italian tyre manufacturer’s status as the go-to choice for the world’s most prestigious motorsport series.

FIA President Mohammed Ben Sulayem lauded Pirelli’s remarkable achievement, emphasizing the tireless dedication of the company in meeting the extreme demands of Formula 1. Sulayem stated, “Pirelli has been operating at the top level of motorsport for many years and I am sure that they will continue to deliver innovation and excellence on the world stage. Formula 1 is a unique challenge for the tyre supplier, and Pirelli has demonstrated great commitment to producing tyres that meet the extreme demands of these incredible cars.”

Marco Tronchetti Provera, Pirelli’s Executive Vice-President, expressed elation at the company’s success. “We’re delighted to extend our presence in Formula 1 and its other related championships. Pirelli was there when Formula 1 was born in 1950, and with this latest renewal, the firm will now be a protagonist throughout nearly two decades of the modern Formula 1 era.” Tronchetti Provera’s words echoed the pride and enthusiasm that Pirelli brings to the world of motorsport.
