Tyre compounds confirmed for Spa, Monza and Singapore
Unsurprisingly, the Italian tyre manufacturer has elected to use its hardest two compounds for the races at Spa and Monza, with the more conservative stance coming after a difficult first half of the season that saw many drivers struggle with tyre wear. Furthermore, the fiasco at the British Grand Prix has caused Pirelli to revert to the harder compounds for the upcoming races.
- Belgian Grand Prix (Spa-Francorchamps) - Medium (Option); Hard (Prime)
- Italian Grand Prix (Monza) - Medium (Option); Hard (Prime)
- Singapore Grand Prix (Marina Bay) – Supersoft (Option); Medium (Prime)
