Mid season flyaway tyre allocations confirmed

Pirelli have confirmed the tyre allocations for the ‘flyaway’ races up until the Azerbaijan Grand Prix in June.

Although untested in race conditions, the new tyres are said to be more durable with Force India’s Andrew Green even suggesting that a soft tyre could do a race distance around Barcelona. Pirelli have suggested that the compounds they start the season with could be amended depending on the racing.

The soft, medium and hard compounds will be used for the Spanish Grand Prix in May, the hardest of the range on a circuit which has a history of being demanding on tyres – especially in the winter.

For Monaco and Canada, the opposite end of the range will be used – the ultra soft, super soft and soft, with both circuits having differing demands on the tyre.

The final released today in Azerbaijan will have the super soft, soft and medium.
