Pirelli confirm tyre allocation for Mexico City

13 Oct 2015

Announcing their tyre nominations for the final four rounds of the 2015 season, Pirelli have confirmed that their medium and soft compounds will be used for Mexico’s return to the F1 calendar next month.

Pirelli’s simulation data has indicated these will be the best choice for the recently revamped Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez, which will host the Formula 1 Gran Premio de Mexico 2015 on November 1.

The same compounds will be used for the preceding race in the United States on October 25, the allocation for the Circuit of The Americas in Austin being unchanged from last season.

The season’s penultimate round in Brazil will also have the medium and soft tyres, as in 2014. These should suit the hot conditions of Interlagos and provide a range of strategy options of between two and three pit stops for most teams.

Finally, Pirelli’s soft and supersoft compounds have been selected for Abu Dhabi: again, the same selection as 2014, on a smooth and varied circuit that the teams know well from previous testing.
