Formula One tyre suppliers Pirelli have confirmed the tyre compounds that will be available at the final three Grands Prix of 2013 in Abu Dhabi, the United States and Brazil.

For Abu Dhabi, the white medium and yellow soft compounds have been selected. This combination is best suited to the varied characteristics of the Yas Marina event, which being a twilight race starts in the late afternoon with falling temperatures towards the end of the Grand Prix.

For the United States, Pirelli will bring the orange hard and white medium compounds. These are the best choice to respond to the challenges of this fast track, which puts high-energy loads through the tyres due to varying elevations that alternate high speeds with some slower and more technical sections.

In Brazil, the orange hard and white medium compounds will be used. Interlagos is a demanding circuit with high-speed corners and significant elevation changes, so these compounds are the best choice for the last race of the 2013 season.
