2011 and 2012 were very memorable years for Pirelli.
After a 20-year absence the company returned to the pinnacle of motorsport in 2011 with a three-year contract to exclusively supply all teams with its latest range of FORMULA 1 tires.
We came into this three-year agreement with a very clear brief, given to us by the championship promoter and the teams: to help make the races more exciting for one of the most prestigious motorsport competitions on earth.
For the past two years FORMULA 1 has allowed us to demonstrate our state-of-the-art high technology and know-how, which has always been at the heart of our company. Our motorsport factory near Istanbul showcases some cutting-edge techniques, but as always, it’s the people within Pirelli who make this company special.
Pirelli has already been involved in motorsport for more than 100 years, and we're also renowned for making the world's most sought-after Ultra High Performance tires.
