The gossip in Malaysia said Michelin wants to be paid to come back next season and favors’ a move from 13 to 18-inch wheel hub diameters. A presenter said in Feb that Michelin might consider returning but there are some very clear situations.

And in the wake up of the newest reports, a representative said to French daily Le Figaro: We have made no decision. But we are closely monitoring the evolution of the regulations, knowing that we are committed to promoting the technical quality of our products and also the notion of respect for the environment.
