Announcements From Pirelli About Tyres Compounds For Bahrain, Spain & Monaco

Our nominations this year are designed to push the envelope of performance, as can be seen from our latest choices. Only the super-soft tyre is the same compound as last year: the other compounds are softer and therefore faster, designed to encourage closer racing as well as a wider variety of strategies.

Pirelli have announced the tyre allocation for rounds 4 to 6 of this season in Bahrain, Spain and Monaco.

In Bahrain, the condition of the track is considered to be medium grip and high temperature. So, medium and soft tyres are being allocated for the race, which is same as Australia and China this year. In Spain, hard and soft compounds will be used at the Circuit de Catalunya. In Monaco, the tight and twisty nature of the circuit requires more grip from the tyres, the soft and super-soft tyres are selected for this circuit. The super-soft tyres are being used first time in this season.

Under the new 2012 rules and regulations, all tyres allocated to a driver may now be used on the first day of practice. In this year, Pirelli has introduced softer compounds and made the teams to emphasize more on pit-stop strategy and efficiency. The tyres are also easier to differentiate than last year’s tyres.

As usual, under normal circumstances,  each team will receive six sets of the harder compound, five sets of the softer compound for the weekend and four sets of the Cinturato Green intermediate tyre for damp track conditions as well as three sets of the Cinturato Blue rain tyre per driver.
