French court rejects Michelin case

The Tribunal de Grande Instance in Paris has thrown out Michelin's case against the FIA relating to the appointment of Pirelli as the sole tyre supplier for the World Rally Championship for three years. Michelin was upset that the decision went against its subsidiary BFGoodrich and was claiming that the tender process was flawed.

Michelin has said that it will appeal the decision. it is not, however, a good start for the tyremaker.
