This is F1Minute - Pirelli announce tyre compounds for Spa, Monza and Singapore.

With Formula One heading off on its traditional summer holiday, tyre supplier Pirelli have offered up three more sets of tyre compounds - announcing what will be used at the Belgium, Italy and Singapore races.

The first race back after the break will be at Spa, where we will see the medium and hard compounds make only their second appearance together this year. They were the compounds of choice at Malaysia as well, and will also be on offer at the Italian Grand Prix following Belgium.

For Singapore, the street circuit nature requires the supersoft and soft rubber which we last saw in Canada.

After the Hungarian Grand Prix this past weekend, and ahead of the summer break, Paul Hembery looked back on the tyre supplier’s season so far: “We've had an unforgettable first half to the 2012 season, with one of the closest starts ever where the tyres have definitely made a difference, so we're already looking forward to the rest of the year.”
