Teams will have the choice of soft and medium tyres for the Bahrain Grand Prix, which will be the first time Pirelli has supplied tyres for an F1 race there.
Pirelli’s options for Spain and Monaco are the same as last year, although the soft and hard compounds are softer than they were 12 months ago.
Pirelli motorsport director Paul Hembery said: “Our nominations this year are designed to push the envelope of performance, as can be seen from our latest choices.
“Only the super soft tyre is the same compound as last year: the other compounds are softer and therefore faster, designed to encourage closer racing as well as a wider variety of strategies.”
