After Max Verstappen took a sensational victory at Silverstone, we head to Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya for the 2020 Spanish Grand Prix. But what Pirelli tyres will be brought for the teams and drivers on the weekend of August 14-16?

For at least the first eight races of this season, drivers get two sets of white-walled hard tyres, three sets of mediums and eight sets of soft tyres. However, the tyre compounds themselves will be different.

As Pirelli’s Head of F1 and Car Racing Mario Isola explained: “With so many variables at the start of this delayed season, and a flexible calendar that doesn't leave much time to react to changing circumstances, it was agreed with the teams, the promoter and the FIA to announce the compound nominations for the first eight races this year all together.

“As usual, these compounds have been chosen to best match the characteristics of the individual circuit and provide interesting opportunities for race strategy.”

See the full allocation for the Spanish Grand Prix, and the next two races, below.
