Pirelli reveal tyre choices for Spain, Monaco and Canada

11 Apr 2014

Pirelli have confirmed the tyre compounds that will be available for Spain, Monaco and Canada.

Formula One racing’s official tyre suppliers will bring their hardest two compounds for the fifth round of 2014, held on the high-energy Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya on May 9-11.

Pirelli will then provide their red-marked supersoft compound for the first time in Monaco, alongside the yellow-marked soft compound. The same allocation will also be provided two weeks later in Canada.

The Italian tyre company said the allocations reflected the respective track characteristics, with much lighter tyre wear expected in Monaco and Canada - both of which rely heavily on mechanical grip - compared to the abrasive surface in Spain.

At a glance - tyre compounds for 2014:

Australia - medium, soft

Malaysia - hard, medium

Bahrain - medium, soft

China - medium, soft

Spain - medium, hard

Monaco - supersoft, soft

Canada - supersoft, soft
