Pirelli reveals tyre choices for next four races
Formula 1 official tyre supplier Pirelli has confirmed the tyre compounds that will be used in the upcoming races in Spain, Monaco, Canada and Austria.
In Spain, the teams will use the two hardest tyres in the Italian company’s range, the white-marked mediums and orange-marked hards, as these are the best combinations to deal with the high loads seen in Barcelona.
Conversely in Monaco, Canada and Austria, the two softest tyres in the range, the red-marked supersofts and the yellow-marked softs, will be used as they are best suited to the low-grip characteristics of each track.
Pirelli says that while the nominations are exactly the same as 2014, with the cars going faster this year, there is more energy going through the tyres.
For the first four races in this season, Pirelli opted for combinations of soft and medium tyres in Australia, China and Bahrain, and hard/medium for the race in Malaysia.
