Boss: 'Pirelli could stay in Formula 1 after 2019'

Pirelli boss Marco Tronchetti Provera says that the Italian brand wants to stay in Formula 1.

Pirelli boss Marco Tronchetti Provera has said that the Italian brand wants to stay in Formula 1.

Currently, the tyre company is under contract to be F1's sole supplier until the end of 2019.

"We remain willing to be in Formula 1, if the economic conditions are the same," Pirelli CEO Tronchetti Provera is quoted as saying by Sky Italia.

The Italian said that Pirelli's work in F1 in recent years was "exceptional, thanks also to the work of our engineers whose skills are recognised by the drivers".

"In Formula 1, we work first of all on safety and then on performance. They are our two drivers," he added.

The Pirelli boss said that his intention is to keep the brand in F1 beyond 2019, but "if the costs become excessive, there are many other races we are passionate about".

"We can continue to race all over the world in other races," he said.

The 2018 calendar continues in Monaco next weekend.
