Pirelli Choose Tyre Compounds for Belgium, Italy and Singapore

1 Mins read

Pirelli has announced the two tyre compounds that will be used for the next three races in the Formula 1 calendar: Belgium, Italy and Singapore.

The Medium (White) and Soft (Yellow) PZero tyres will be provided to teams for both the Belgian Grand Prix, which takes place at Spa-Francorchamps over the last weekend in August, and for Pirelli‘s home race in Monza, Italy.

Under the lights of Singapore, the Soft (Yellow) and Super-Soft (Red) tyres will be on show, the same choice used in Monaco, Canada, and last weekend in Hungary.

“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,” explains Paul Hembery, Pirelli Motorsport Director.

“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.”
