Pirelli reveals latest tyre choices

Pirelli reveals the compounds available for the next three F1 events
Pirelli has confirmed the choice of tyres that will be available to F1 teams for the next three rounds of the season at Silverstone, Nurburgring and the Hungaroring.

The British Grand Prix will see Pirelli take the hard and soft compound tyres while the medium and soft tyres will be used in Germany – as was the case last weekend in Valencia.

Thanks to the slow speed nature of the Hungaroring, Pirelli will then take its soft and supersoft tyres to Hungary, marking a return to the rubber used in both Monaco and Canada.

“Our nominations are designed to maximise the opportunities for strategy and find the right compromise between performance and durability,” Pirelli motorsport director Paul Hembery said. “For Silverstone, we are confirming the decision we took a few weeks ago, after once more consulting all the teams, and for the next two races we have arrived at what we feel to be the best solution based on the information that we have so far.

“As has been the case up to now this year, we think that there will be quite a wide variety of different strategies for the next three grands prix, but for all the races it's reasonably hard to predict how many pit stops there will be: it ultimately depends on the strategy and strengths of each individual car and team.”
