Michelin becomes DTM tyre partner
DTM will be racing exclusively with Michelin competition tyres in the 2021 season. Last week, the organisation of the international series and the French manufacturer signed an according agreement.
“Michelin stands for top quality and absolute premium products that have not only been used on the road for decades, but also come first in racing“, Gerhard Berger said. “Every race driver will confirm: The consistently high performance of Michelin tyres over the entire duration of the race is unbeatable. From the driver’s and team’s perspective the best conditions that one could wish for.”
The Michelin tyres will be used for the first time at the DTM test on April 7/8 at the Hockenheimring and from 4 to 6 May at the Lausitzring, just before the season opener on 18 June at Monza.
