Exclusive access from $6.55/month
Michelin has initiated legal proceedings against the FIA, following the news at the end of last month that Pirelli will become the control tyre for the WRC from 2008-2010.

Michelin currently supply all the teams in the World Rally Championship, via sister brand, BFGoodrich, however the recent decision by the World Motor Sport Council has left the French tyre manufacturer extremely upset.

A brief statement to the media read: "Michelin has initiated legal proceedings against the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile and requests that the February 27, 2007 decision of the World Motor Sport Council of the FIA granting Pirelli the exclusive supply of tyres for the 2008-2009-2010 World Rally Championships (WRC) be annulled due to irregularities in the tender process."

The FIA has yet to issue a counter-statement.
