FIA confirms Bridgestone as Formula E tyre supplier

Bridgestone has been named by the FIA as the sole future tyre supplier for the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, starting from the 2026-2027 season. Decreed by the World Motor Sport Council in Baku, it will provide rubber through to the 2029-2030 season.

A cornerstone of the company’s sustainable global motorsports strategy, the supply deal with the FIA will see Bridgestone continue to develop and refine sustainable technology where it “produces” and “uses” tyres, and then “renews” them to raw materials.

Under the company’s mission “serving society with superior quality”, Bridgestone is dedicated to shaping, being essential to the future of mobility through the products it supplies as part of its sustainable global motorsports initiatives.

The company’s commitment extends beyond the racetrack, aiming to contribute significantly to the realisation of a sustainable society.

“Motorsports is Bridgestone’s passion. Always has been, and always will be. I am delighted to be able to announce our return to an FIA World Championship this year as we celebrate the 60th anniversary of our motorsports activities,” global CEO Shu Ishibashi said.

“Sharing the passion to race and passion to win, Bridgestone has empowered the best performance of cars, drivers and teams in racing conditions by repeatedly taking on the ultimate challenges while ensuring safety and peace of mind based on our fundamental principle “tyres carry life”,” he added.

“This “ultimate challenge”, as we call “challenge for excellence”, is our origin as a tyre manufacturer and shaped the foundation of our premium tire business.”

The core of its supply arrangement with the FIA will be the expansion and enhancement of ENLITEN tyre product technology.
