Avon tyres confirms 2011 Formula 1

Published

on

Avon has confirmed reports it is a potential supplier of tyres in Formula 1 2010 season.

The name entered the casing as a possible substitution for Formula 1’s departing only supplier Bridgestone tyres in China last weekend, among proposals the teams group FOTA had agreed an in-principle deal with Michelin.

Other than with the famed French marque wanting to be paid and approaching for policies allowing much lower profile tyres, it was rumored Avon was favored by Bernie Ecclestone and the smaller teams as a non-branded and cheaper option.

The UK based Avon Tyres, dealer to the defunct A1GP open wheeler series, was sold to Ohio based Cooper in 1997. Its motor racing division said in a statement that it “has been approached” to supply tyres to F1 teams.

“The company is in discussion with the relevant parties and cannot comment further at this stage,” said Avon Cooper.

It is rumoured that Bridgestone could stay silently concerned beyond this year as the non-official supplier of technology and personnel to Avon. F1 team bosses Martin Whitmarsh and Stefano Domenicali said they are confident the issue will be resolved by the next race in Barcelona.

“I think we will know something more, I would say 100 per cent, by Barcelona,” Ferrari’s Domenicali said before departing Shanghai.
