    Formula 1 - Hankook rules out 2014 F1 tyre bid - Yahoo! Eurosport UK

    Formula 1 - Hankook rules out 2014 F1 tyre bid

    Hankook has ruled out becoming Formula 1 tyre supplier in 2014 if Pirelli does not agree a new contract.

    The South Korean company, which currently supplies tyres in a number of categories including the DTM and the Formula 3 European Championship, is open to a move to grand prix racing in the future.

    But the company's DTM competition engineer Michael Eckert has confirmed it is too late to consider such a move next year.

    He added that the lack of testing opportunities could also stymie such a move in the long term.

    "For 2014, it's completely impossible not only because of the lack of tyre development time," he told AUTOSPORT when asked about the viability of a move into F1 next season.

    "Even if Hankook wants to take three, four, five years to jump into Formula 1 as a supplier, the lack of testing opportunities would make it impossible.

    "With the current cars and drivers, it's impossible [to test] so you need to find a suitable number of vehicles and drivers that would allow you to get some reliable feedback."

    Eckert added that question marks over the long-term tyre regulations would also make it difficult to commit to developing F1 rubber given the lead time required.

    "Even if we started this year with the first tyre test, it would take easily three years until you can finish a safe and performing F1 tyre," he said.

    "Now the regulations are changing; engine formula, chassis, and aerodynamics... nobody even knows about the dimensions of the tyres for 2014 - they are still not fixed.

    "It's not 100 per cent certain they'll continue with 13-inch tyres. It might be 15 or even 17.

    "It could happen in the next five years that F1 cars are on 18-inch tyres."

    Bridgestone not interested in F1 return

    Bridgestone has confirmed it currently has no plans to re-enter F1, the sport it quit at the end of 2010.

    Pirelli has still to renew its exclusive deal and while Pirelli president Marco Tronchetti Provera said recently that he is confident his company will continue as F1's sole tyre supplier beyond 2013 [see separate story - HERE], the fall-out from the 'secret' test it conducted with Mercedes following the Spanish Grand Prix could yet derail things, especially as the FIA has now said it will convene an International Tribunal.

    Bridgestone, however, it seems, is not interested in a return, at least in 2014.

    “We have no current plans to re-enter Formula One,” a spokesperson for Bridgestone told metro.co.uk.

    “Bridgestone was successful in applying the technologies for compounds, design and simulation for F1 tyres for the development of passenger car tyres.

    “We can say that the participation of Bridgestone in F1 for 14 years was very significant.”

    Mainit ang return ng Michelin...

    Michelin considering F1 return

    Michelin pulled out of F1 in 2006, and since then, they have concentrated on sports car endurance racing along with their Green X Challenge program.

    Jun.7 (GMM) Michelin is the latest tyre brand linked with F1 in 2014.

    In recent days, former F1 supplier Bridgestone joined Korea's Hankook in playing down the prospect of replacing Pirelli next season.

    Manuel Franco, the correspondent for the Spanish sports daily AS, wrote on Thursday: "In the Montreal paddock it is being said that Michelin representatives have met with F1 executives to look into returning to the sport."

    Michelin returned to F1 in 2001 to compete against Bridgestone, but fell out badly with the FIA in the wake of the 2005 US grand prix fiasco at Indianapolis, and pulled out a season later when F1 moved to a control-tyre formula.
