F1’s official tyre supplier will bring its two softest compounds the Austrian Grand Prix, which is returning to the calendar for the first time since 2003.
The soft and super-soft compounds will be used at the Red Bull Ring, the configuration of which is the same as when F1 last visited the track 11 years ago, when it was called the A1-Ring.
The same two compounds will also be used for the German Grand Prix, which is being held at the Hockenheimring this year. Pirelli used the medium and soft tyres the last time F1 visited the track in 2012.
For the British and Hungarian Grands Prix the tyre selections are unchanged from last year: the hardest two compounds will be used at Silverstone, and the soft and medium at the Hungaroring.
