Michelin joins A1GP
Michelin is to become the exclusive tyre supplier to A1GP, beginning this autumn. The deal is for three years. The tyres have been tested on the new Ferrari-built cars and have clocked up 2500 miles of running in the hands of Andrea Bertolini, Patrick Friesacher and Marc Gene. The design of the tyres stem from technologies developed in F1.
The move is no surprise given Michelin's anger at being pushed out of F1 as a result of the single tyre formula.
