Michelin confirmed Formula 1 interest

The Michelin tyres officially confirmed the French company is allowing for coming back to Formula One in 2011 as a tyre contractor. The rumors about Michelin’s come back increased momentum at Sepang last weekend, after team bosses met with Bernie Ecclestone and discussed at length how to switch the going away of Bridgestone as the official supplier at the end of the season. Michelin gone F1 after an strong tyre war with Bridgestone at the end of 2006, upset that the sport had opted to run with just a single supplier.

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.

Michelin is too believed to be open to a tyre war with competitor makers.
