TOKYO: Bridgestone Corp. Thursday announced that as the official tire supplier of the Formula One (F1) World Championship it will supply ‘MAKE CARS GREEN TYRES’ to all teams at every race this season. Through this initiative, Bridgestone said it aims to further spread the message of the ‘MAKE CARS GREEN’ environmental campaign.
Since last year Bridgestone has been promoting the campaign globally with Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile. This season, the company will supply to all Formula One Grand Prix events two types of dry tire with different compounds (rubber hardness) and two types of wet tire with different tread depths. In order to differentiate the tires within the two categories of tire, the softer dry tire and the heavy-rain-use (extreme wet weather) tire will be indicated in green lines.
