Pirelli nominates compounds for Belgium, Italy and Singapore

NEWS STORY
24/07/2014

Pirelli has nominated the tyre compounds that will be taken to the forthcoming Grands Prix of Belgium, Italy and Singapore.

At Spa - one of the most spectacular and demanding circuits on the calendar - the P Zero White medium and P Zero Yellow soft tyres will be used, which will be well-suited to the varied track and weather conditions often found in Belgium. In 2013 the hard and medium compounds were used.

For Monza, the 'temple of speed' and Pirelli's home event, as in 2013, the two hardest compounds in the range have been nominated: P Zero Orange hard and P Zero White medium. This is to combat the high-energy loads that are put through the tyres as the result of high traction and braking demands, sustained high speeds and frequently warm temperatures.

Singapore is the final street circuit of the season and held at night, providing a unique combination of conditions. The two softest tyres in the range will be used: P Zero Yellow soft and P Zero Red supersoft. These will provide maximum mechanical grip. In 2013 the options were medium and supersoft.
