Pirelli have announced the tyre combinations they will bring to the next three Grands Prix, with the medium tyre at work in each of the events. The British Grand Prix will see the medium tyres alongside the hard compound, which should cope with the faster Silverstone circuit.
The Nürburgring is slightly less demanding, and will see the compounds take one step down, with the mediums and softs in action. For the Hungarian Grand Prix, the teams will be back to a choice between hard and mediums again. This selection means that the medium tyre will have been in use for all bar one of the races so far - that race being Monaco.
Pirelli have also managed to squeeze in a bit of a dig at the teams, as they’ve confirmed they are not changing the construction of the tyres due to a “lack of team support.” This has come about due to the fact free practice testing of the developmental tyres has been limited by the weather, and teams can’t unanimously decide what they want to do.
