After Hankook’s successful first season as official technical partner and tyre supplier of the 2022/23 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, Season 10 gets underway as soon as next week. From 24th to 27th October, the manufacturers, drivers and partners will be at Circuit Ricardo Tormo on the outskirts of Valencia, Spain, to prepare for the coming season. Like last year, the host for the opening round of the world championship on 13th January 2024 will be Mexico City.
Hankook Motorsport Director Manfred Sandbichler: “We are delighted that it is time to get the ball rolling again. Our first year as official tyre partner of the Formula E World Championship was very successful for us. The Hankook iON Race demonstrated its great potential and very high level of consistency in diverse weather conditions and at tracks with a wide range of different characteristics. In Season 9, the tyres were new to all the teams. We were also unable to call on any reference data, as the Hankook tyres were being used for the first time at the Formula E circuits around the world. It is now a different story in our second season, as we are familiar with the majority of tracks. Together with the teams, we will use the data analysed to ensure the Hankook iON Race performs at its very best again.”
