Pirelli has confirmed its tire selections for the returning German Grand Prix at Hockenheim in July.

After a deal was not reached with the Nurburgring regarding the hosting of a race in 2015, the German Grand Prix took a one-year break before rejoining the schedule for 2016.

The race is set to be held at Hockenheim on July 31 as the final event before Formula 1’s enforced summer break.

On Thursday, Pirelli announced its tire picks for the race at Hockenheim, electing to take its medium, soft and super-soft compounds to Germany.

In a new rule introduce for the 2016 season, Pirelli now brings three compounds to each race, up from two in 2015.

Teams are required to use the softest compound for the final part of qualifying – in this case, the super-soft – and save a set of the two remaining picks for the race, one of which must be used.

Here are Pirelli’s picks thus far in 2016.
