Pirelli confirmed as F1 tyre supplier for 2025-27 seasons

Formula 1 has confirmed that Pirelli will remain the sport’s exclusive tyre supplier for the 2025-27 seasons.

The Italian manufacturer, which was in competition with Bridgestone during the tender process, will also continue its supply deals with the FIA Formula 3 and Formula 2 Championships.

Pirelli’s deal includes an option for the FIA and F1 to extend the partnership into 2028.

Bridgestone reportedly offered F1 a significant financial incentive, but the sport ultimately opted for a conservative status quo.

During the contract adjudication process, both companies faced stringent sustainability requirements by the FIA and F1 as part of the sport’s 2030 Net Zero objective.

“Since returning to the sport in 2011 Pirelli has been an invaluable partner, supporting F1 through new generations of technology and technical regulations and delivering tyres to enable fantastic racing for our fans,” commented Formula 1 chief executive Stefano Domenicali.

“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 and the work Pirelli is focused on relating to sustainability, proven by the FSC certification, will ensure we continue to work together towards our shared Net Zero 2030 goal.”

FIA president Mohammed Ben Sulayem highlighted Pirelli’s strong commitments towards “performance and sustainability”.

“Pirelli has been operating at the top level of motor sport for many years and I am sure that they will continue to deliver innovation and excellence on the world stage,” he said.

“F1 is a unique challenge for the tyre supplier, and Pirelli has demonstrated great commitment to producing tyres that meet the extreme demands of these incredible cars.

“Work will continue in the coming years to take further strides both in terms of performance and sustainability, and Pirelli have made strong commitments to both of these targets.”

Pirelli executive vice-president Marco Tronchetti Provera said that the manufacturer’s involvement in F1 continues to add an important “value dimension” to the company.

“Thanks to the impetus from Liberty Media and the support of the FIA, the sport is enjoying an extraordinary period of growth both in terms of audience and global expansion, increasing its following among younger generations as well,” he said.

“Innovation and technology are locked into Pirelli’s DNA, and F1 constitutes the ultimate open air laboratory to not only try out and test new technical solutions, but also to accelerate fresh research, development, and production processes in making tyres.

“Our commitment to sustainability is equally strong, as proved by the FSC certification that will be introduced to our F1 tyres from next year.

“Being at the forefront of motorsport’s pinnacle until at least 2027 adds another important value dimension to our company.”
