After Formula 1 and the FIA (Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile) accepted the Italian tire company’s offer for the three-year term from 2025 to 2027, Pirelli expanded its involvement in Formula 1 as a global tire partner. The FIA and FOM have the extra option of extending their relationship for one more season. The FIA World Motor Sport Council has approved this most recent agreement, which was launched by the technical dossier it received from the FIA in June and designates Pirelli as the only supplier to the FIA Formula One World Championship as well as the Formula 2 and Formula 3 championships.
Pirelli stated that by the end of this most current deal (including any potential extensions), it will have supplied Formula 1 for 18 years in a row, having begun its most recent chapter in 2011.
Pirelli’s dedication to Formula 1 – as is the case with all forms of motorsport, where the company has participated for more than 110 years in over 350 championships globally – presents an opportunity to innovate and experiment with new processes and technologies, including artificial intelligence, the company said, all with the aim of transferring technology onto the road.
Thanks to a number of efforts both on and off the track, Pirelli is not only the tire provider for Formula 1, but also a global partner in the sport’s global promotion. The next generation of young drivers will be recruited through these initiatives, which include Formula 2 and Formula 3 in particular, according to Pirelli.
Pirelli said that starting in 2024, all tires used in FIA Formula One World Championship competitions will be FSC-certified (Forest Stewardship Council) as a further example of the company’s environmental efforts. FSC certification for forest management ensures complete traceability of forest-based materials throughout the supply chain and verifies that tire plantations are run in a way that protects biological diversity, improves the lives of local residents and workers, and promotes economic sustainability.
