Although the Malaysian Grand Prix doesn’t run until October 1, Pirelli has already designated its selections for that race.

The tire manufacturer has gone for the supersoft, soft and medium compounds, one step softer than this race last year, when Pirelli brought the soft, medium and hard compounds.

Pirelli has made all its selections through Malaysia, with the exception of Belgium and Italy, the last two rounds of the traditional European season and the first two races after the traditional August summer break.
