Pirelli announces tyre choices up to Silverstone

Pirelli reveals the compounds available for the next three 2012 F1 races post-Monaco

Pirelli has announced the tyre compounds that it will make available to teams for the forthcoming races in Montreal, Valencia and Silverstone.

For the Canadian Grand Prix, the teams will use the yellow soft and red supersoft tyres, as will be used in Monaco this weekend, while at the European Grand Prix the teams will have the white medium and yellow soft compounds at their disposal.

Finally, for the British Grand Prix in July, Pirelli has selected the yellow soft and the silver hard tyres.

“Montreal's street circuit is tight and twisty, making it ideally suited to the two softest compounds in the range,” Pirelli explained. “Valencia is also a street circuit, but higher temperatures and faster speeds mean that the medium and the soft tyres are most suitable.

“Silverstone is one of the quickest circuits of the year, so the nomination of hard and soft – with a full step in between the two compounds – will showcase both the durability and performance of Pirelli's products, while opening up many different possibilities in terms of strategy.”
