Pirelli announces tire compounds for next three races
Formula 1 tire manufacturer Pirelli has announced the compounds which will be made available to the teams and drivers during the upcoming Turkish, Spanish and Monaco Grands Prix. The Hard and Soft tire are to be used at Istanbul Park and the Circuit de Catalunya, while the Soft and Super Soft will be taken to the street of Monte-Carlo.

Pirelli Motorsport Director Paul Hembery explained the reasons behind the Italian company’s latest choices: "We’ve considered carefully all the circuit characteristics in order to help provide races as exciting as all the Grands Prix we have seen so far this year."

"We’re very much looking forward to Monaco in particular, where we will see the Super Soft tire in action for the first time. It’s quite a different tire to the rest of the range and should be very effective around the streets of Monte Carlo."

Pirelli tire choices for the next three races:
Turkish Grand Prix:
Prime: Hard
Option: Soft 

Spanish Grand Prix:
Prime: Hard
Option: Soft 

Monaco Grand Prix:
Prime: Soft
