Mark Webber, Red Bull, Melbourne, 2012Pirelli has chosen softer tyres from its range for the first race of the season.

The Super Soft and Medium tyres will be provided for the Australian Grand Prix at Melbourne, where Soft and Medium were chosen last year.

The tyre allocations for Malaysia (medium and hard) and China (soft and medium) are unchanged for 2013.

In Bahrain teams will be provided with soft and hard tyres – last year the soft and medium compounds were used.

Pirelli have produced a softer range of tyres for the 2013 season. The new hard tyre is similar in compound to last year’s medium.
