July’s British Grand Prix will feature Pirelli’s three hardest compounds – like Spain next weekend – with the tire manufacturer confirming the soft, medium and hard compounds for Silverstone.
The British GP nominations come on the heels of the Austrian GP nominations, where Pirelli will run its ultrasoft, supersoft and soft compounds.
That will tie for the biggest race-to-race tire compound change this season. From Spain to Monaco later this month, there will be the step from the same soft/medium/hard combination to the ultrasoft/supersoft/soft run. The ultrasofts – Pirelli’s new ultra sticky, short-life compound – make their race weekend debut in Monaco.
