Pirelli reveals next tyre choices

Pirelli reveals the tyre choices for three more races on the F1 calendar
Pirelli has revealed the tyre choices that will be available to teams for the F1 races in Japan, Korea and India.

In Japan, teams will run with the hard and soft tyres, meaning there will be a gap between compounds for the first time since Silverstone – and for only the third time all season.

Korea will then see teams using the soft and supersoft, as was the case last season, while Pirelli has used the knowledge gained from the inaugural Indian GP last season to go with the same soft/hard choice that will be available at Suzuka.

“With India being new to the calendar last year, Pirelli's engineers faced the challenge of accumulating as much simulated data as they could about the Buddh circuit,” a statement from the tyre supplier read.

“This year, the tyre nomination has been made with real data, and as a result the hard and the soft compounds have been selected to provide the best spectacle on one of the longest straights in Formula One, as well as some complex multi-apex corners that put plenty of energy through the tyres.”
