Formula 1 has arrived in Italy for the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix this weekend – and Pirelli have confirmed the tyres that will be in play.

The three softest compounds being in play could lead to more strategic options during the race, which has traditionally been a one-stop, reinforced by the track holding one of the biggest pit lane time losses of the year.

According to the Italian manufacturer, “the track is not particularly hard in terms of the forces exerted on the tyres, even if the asphalt is still relatively abrasive”, despite the most recent resurfacing work dating back to 2011.

Formula 2 and Formula 3 will also be back in action at Imola, with the F2 field using the supersoft and medium compounds, and the F3 grid running only the medium rubber.
