French tyre manufacturers Michelin is planning to return to Formula One in 2001. Michelin left Formula One at the end of the 1984 season. A formal announcement is expected in a few days. Furthermore, according to Motoring News magazine, Michelin had already notified the FIA that it intended to enter Formula One in 2001.

Michelin, the magazine reports, plans to return with the BMW-Williams and then also provide tyres for Toyota, once the Japanese manufacturer makes its entry. However, neither Toyota nor Williams made comments on this.
