Tokyo -- As part of its 'Make Cars green' campaign, Bridgestone is to make special green-grooved tyres for the Tokyo Grand Prix, scheduled for this Sunday, 12 October.
Bridgestone, the global partner for the FIA's campaign, launched the Make Cars Green tyre at a ceremony in Tokyo, with support from Formula One teams McLaren-Mercedes and Ferrari, as well as their drivers Lewis Hamilton, Heikki Kovalainen, Felipe Massa and Kimi RÃ¤ikkÃ¶nen.
McLaren-Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton said, "â€œSince it first launched I've been happy to help promote the very positive messages of the Make Cars Green campaign. It is a subject that goes far beyond racing. The car is an incredibly positive thing and I think the messages of the campaign help to show us that we can all choose to drive in a greener way. "
