Italian tyre producer Pirelli has won a bid to extend its deal to provide Formula 1 race cars with tyres until 2027 with the option for an additional year, the sport’s organisers announced Tuesday.
Pirelli took up the exclusive role in 2011 and is also the official tyre provider for F1 academy, F2, and F3 while in 2021 they replaced French outfit Michelin as provider for the World Rally Championship.
“The company’s commitment to quality, innovation and their deep knowledge of our sport will be vital in the coming years as we approach our new regulations in 2026,” said Formula 1 CEO Stefano Domenicali.
“The work Pirelli is focused on relating to sustainability… will ensure we continue to work together towards our shared Net Zero 2030 goal.”
The move comes as F1 and Pirelli attempt to ensure trye security after high temperatures at the Qatar Grand Prix threw up dangerous problems for tyres on Friday, requiring a revision of the tyre rules for Sunday’s race.
