Pirelli reveals compounds for final 7 events

Pirelli has revealed the tyre compounds to be used at the final seven rounds of the 2020 season.

"With the 2020 calendar now complete for this highly unusual COVID-disrupted season, which features a number of new venues, we're pleased to announce the tyre nominations up to the end of the year," said Mario Isola.

"As usual, these have been designed to take into account a wide range of factors such as circuit layout, likely weather conditions, and asphalt characteristics.

"Where the circuits are new, we've relied on information about the asphalt and data from other championships plus computer simulations from teams to identify the most appropriate selection.

"As has been the case since the season re-started, there will be a standard allocation of two sets of hard tyres, three sets of mediums, and eights sets of softs per driver for Germany, Bahrain and Abu Dhabi.

"At Imola, there will only be 10 sets of tyres per driver (two sets of hard, two sets of medium and six sets of soft) as it's just a two-day race weekend.

"In Portugal and Turkey, due to expected severity of the circuits, the allocation will be three sets of hard, three sets of medium, and seven sets of soft. As a result, the drivers will have a hard tyre to try during free practice, and still be able to keep two sets of the hard for the race if required."

As ever, each driver must save one set of the softest of the three nominated compounds for Q3. This set will then be returned for those who qualify in the top 10, but the remaining drivers will keep it for the race.

Each driver must have one set of hards and mediums available for the race and one of them must be used.

Each driver has 13 sets available in total for the weekend. At the Grand Prix of Emilia-Romagna in Imola, there will only be 10 sets of tyres per driver as it's a two-day race weekend.
