Pirelli goes softer with British GP tyres

18 May 2017 – F1 tyre supplier Pirelli has revealed its compound choices for the British Grand Prix, with the brand going one step softer than last year's event at Silverstone.

Pirelli will bring its Super Soft, Soft and Medium tyres to the event, in the wake of criticism from drivers in Spain, where the Soft, Medium and Hard rubber was used.

It will mark the fourth Grand Prix in 2017 at which the red-marked, yellow-marked and white-marked tyres have been used together, after China, Bahrain and Azerbaijan.

Out of the 13 available sets of tyres, one set of Super Softs must be kept for Q3, while either the Softs or Mediums must be run for one stint of the race.

Pirelli's 2017 choices so far:

Australia – Ultra Soft / Super Soft / Soft
China – Super Soft / Soft / Medium
Bahrain – Super Soft / Soft / Medium
Russia – Ultra Soft / Super Soft / Soft
Spain – Soft / Medium / Hard
Monaco – Ultra Soft / Super Soft / Soft
Canada – Ultra Soft / Super Soft / Soft
Azerbaijan – Super Soft / Soft / Medium
Austria – Ultra Soft / Super Soft / Soft
Britain – Super Soft / Soft / Medium
