Pirelli has confirmed Thursday its tire selection for the Austrian Grand Prix on July 3. The softest compound, the ultrasoft, will be there along with the supersoft and soft compounds.

This will be the same selection as exists at Monaco and Canada, with the first European Grand Prix held in Baku, Azerbaijan adding the medium tire as the hardest compound with the supersoft and soft.

Interestingly Pirelli had previously said the ultrasoft compound would only run at street circuits, so to see its presence at the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg comes as a bit of a surprise.
