Hankook Sponsors W Series at Formula 1

May 6, 2021

Hankook & Co. is once again the exclusive tire partner of the Formula 1 W Series, providing its Ventus racing tires.

“Having confidence in the performance of the tires is vital when you are racing on the limit and Hankook’s quality and consistency in all conditions during W Series’ first season helped all of the drivers focus on racing, producing lots of exciting on-track battles," says racer Jamie Chadwick.

"This year will be an even bigger challenge as we visit eight new circuits with Formula 1, but I know that Hankook’s team will rise to the occasion again, allowing my competitors and me to shine on motor racing’s biggest stage."

The W Series season begins on June 26.

Sooil Lee, president and CEO of Hankook, says, “Hankook has supported the W Series as exclusive tire partner from day one because we want to help the young drivers find their feet and establish themselves in a motorsport world that is still male-dominated. We are pleased to be able to support the W Series again in 2021, now on the same bill as Formula 1.

"With the Ventus race tire, Hankook wants to help the drivers show exactly what they are capable of on an international stage.”
