Pirelli reveal tire choices for next three races

Leave a comment

Pirelli has selected which tires will be used for the next three races of the season after Singapore.

F1’s official tire supplier has chosen a more conservative mix of compounds for two of the races but softened the mix for another of the rounds.

For the Indian Grand Prix, where the hard and soft tires were used for its two previous races, the medium and soft tires have been chosen this year.

However in Japan and Korea the tire combinations are more conservative than they were last year. The medium and super-soft tires will be used in Korea, and for Japan Pirelli are bringing their two hardest compounds.

Here’s the full tire allocation for 2013:

Circuit Option Prime
Melbourne Super Soft Medium
Sepang Medium Hard
Shanghai Soft Medium
Bahrain Soft Hard
Catalunya Medium Hard
Monte-Carlo Super Soft Soft
Montreal Super Soft Medium
Silverstone Medium Hard
Nurburgring Soft Medium
Hungaroring Soft Medium
Spa-Francorchamps Medium Hard
Monza Medium Hard
Singapore Super Soft Medium
Korea Super Soft Medium
Suzuka Medium Hard
Buddh Soft Medium
Yas Marina TBA TBA
Circuit of the Americas TBA TBA
Interlagos TBA TBA

As it has done so for four decades, the 40th annual Dakar Rally – the most grueling test of man and machine anywhere – produced a number of surprise finishes and also several disappointments for drivers or riders who were expected to do well in the nearly 5,600-mile trek that began in Peru and continued through Bolivia and ending in Argentina.

NBCSN has aired highlights from all 14 stages (actually 13, because one stage was completely rained out) during the Rally’s two-week run, which concluded Saturday.
