Pirelli reveals new tyre selections

Pirelli reveals the tyres it will take to Spa, Monza and Singapore
Pirelli has revealed the tyre compounds it will take to the next three rounds of the F1 season in Belgium, Italy and Singapore.

At Spa, Pirelli will take its medium and soft compound tyres while the same tyres will then be taken to Pirelli's home event at Monza.

In Singapore for F1's annual night race, Pirelli will then take the soft and supersoft tyres, which are seen to be best suited to the tight confines and variable surfaces found on the street circuit.

“We're learning more and more with every race in our first year of Formula One, and fine-tuning our compound choices to benefit from the valuable information that we are accumulating,” Pirelli motorsport director Paul Hembery said. “We've got three of the most thrilling races on the entire calendar coming up, and we believe that we've arrived at some tyre nominations that are very well-suited to the characteristics of these very different but equally exciting circuits.

“Of course there will always be some unknown factors – such as the weather – but the choices we have made are designed to help teams maximise both their performance and their race strategy.”

Pirelli..... i use them on my alfa . they are softer than michelins and good in the wet. For F1 Pirelli have done a good job and i think all the f1 pilots will agree they are able to get tyres working better compared to bridgestone of last year. But what would be nice and including Moto Gp is to include Michelin or goodyear or Dunlop to spice things up.

If someone has proof of collusion, then great... this story will have some legs. Yet, if this is just an attempt to stir up the chatter stew, then I can use a break from it. The racing is starting to get good... let's not spoil it with conjecture.
