The FIA has kick-started the tender for tyre suppliers for F1, F2 and F3 championships beyond the 2024 season.
With the current run of deal coming to an end in 2024, the FIA has launched the tender for a new contract for companies who wish to be the tyre suppliers of F1, F2 and F3 championships from 2025 season onward for a three year period.
The tender is for the years 2025, 2026 and 2027, but the FIA along with the relevant parties could extend the deal to 2028. The deadline for the same is December 31, 2026. The tender opened up on March 20 and the submission date is May 15 of this year.
By June 16, the FIA will confirm the suppliers for F1, F2 and F3 championships. The governing body will ascertain the sustainability factor as the current 18-inch compound is to remain for until 2027 and if 2028 even, with no changes planned on that side.
Pirelli has been the sole manufacturer since 2011 after Bridgestone left F1. The last round of suppliers tender saw Hankook bid along with Pirelli, but the latter was selected eventually. The commercial angle is key in current era of single supplier.
As seen in F1, the F2 and F3 championships has also seen Pirelli as the sole suppliers since 2011. The championships ran under the GP2 and GP3 banner at that time, and formally changed itself to F2 and F3 from the 2017 season but the suppliers remained the same.
