Pirelli to use full F1 compound range for Belgium, Italy, Singapore
Pirelli has announced its compounds for the Formula One grands prix in Belgium, Italy and Singapore. At Spa, one of F1’s most spectacular and demanding circuits, Nico Rosberg, Lewis Hamilton and the increasingly distant chasing pack will use the P Zero White and Yellow medium and soft tyres suited to Belgium’s the varied track and weather conditions. For Monza’s “temple of speed”, Pirelli will use the P Zero Orange and White hard and medium tyres. The hardest P Zero F1 tyres will be deployed to combat high-energy loads resulting from high traction and braking demands, sustained high speeds and frequently warm temperatures. Finally, the Singapore street circuit night race will see the two softest compounds – the P Zero Yellow soft and P Zero Red supersoft – come into play, in order to provide the most mechanical grip.
