More than a hundred journalists follow Meet the Hankook Team in the Media Center

The first Hankook Meet the Team at a race weekend of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship generated a lot of interest in the Media Center. More than a hundred journalists followed Hankook Director of Communication Felix Kinzer’s interviews with Hankook Motorsport Director Manfred Sandbichler, race engineer Thomas Baltes, and Hankook’s test and development driver Benoît Tréluyer. Numerous questions during and after the Meet the Team event made the first press conference a success.

Hankook supplies its race tyres to globally-renowned series, high-class junior formats and popular grassroot events. With new collaborations and partnerships, the company is constantly enhancing its status as a global player on the motorsport scene.

In close cooperation with Formula E, the iON Race was developed for the world championship. Roughly 30 percent of the high-performance tyre is made of sustainable materials. With this commitment, Hankook is taking another pioneering step towards energy efficiency and sustainability in motorsport. The premium tyre maker has also agreed a further collaboration with Italian sports car manufacturer Lamborghini Squadra Corse and has been official technical partner and exclusive tyre supplier of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo since 2023.
