Pirelli reveal tire choices for next three races


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.
