Pirelli has confirmed the 2015 tyre choices up to its home grand prix in Italy, with a third outing of 2015 for the P Zero Orange hard tyre at Silverstone. The fast British circuit, next on the agenda for Formula One, will see Pirelli supply its P Zero White medium too, meaning the hardest tyres in the line-up will be utilised for the second time in two years.
Alongside the announcement of its introduction of P Zero branded tyres into the BRDC Formula 4 Championship, Pirelli has launched its 2015 motorsport calendar at Autosport International. The tyre manufacturer is to compete in four key disciplines: single-seaters, saloon cars, sports and GT cars, and rallying.
Jaguar has approved Pirelli’s Sottozero 3 as an original equipment fitment on its F-Type two-seater. Sizes homologated for the coming winter include 245/45 R18 100V (front axle), 275/40 R18 103V (rear axle), 245/40 R19 94V (front), 275/35 R19 96V (rear), 255/35R20 97V XL (front) and 285/30 R20 99V (rear). All versions of the Pirelli Sottozero 3 approved for original equipment supply feature specific sidewall markings; those destined for the F-Type will bear the letter ‘J’.
