Pirelli has announced that the soft and super softs will be used as prime and option tires for the Canada GP in Montreal next month.
The super soft tire is set to make its debut at the Monaco GP later this month.
Pirelli also said that its medium tire will make its debut as the prime tire at Valencia's Grand Prix of Europe, with the super soft as option. That race follows Montreal.
At the British Grand Prix in July, the hard and soft tires will be prime and option.
"We've come up with tire nominations that should not only be well suited to the characteristics of each circuit, but also provide a great race for the drivers and spectators," Pirelli's motorsport director Paul Hembery said. "(There will be) plenty of scope for the teams to exercise their strategic skills."
Montreal has similar characteristics to Monaco in terms of grip and traction, while Valencia - which is a street circuit - is quicker than Monaco. Silverstone is one of the quickest tracks.
The Italian tire brand has drawn widespread praise since returning to the F1 grid this season after a 20-year absence to replace Japanese manufacturer Bridgestone as the sole supplier until 2013.
