Pirelli reveal tyre compound allocations for Germany

26 May 2016

Pirelli have confirmed the three tyre compounds that will be made available for this year's German Grand Prix at Hockenheim in July.

The selection consists of the white-marked medium, the yellow-marked soft and the red-mark supersofts - the seventh time this season that teams and drivers have been given this choice from Pirelli's range.

Under the new-for-2016 rules, teams must have a set of medium and a set of softs available for the race, and must use at least one of them.

Each driver will also have to save one set of supersofts for the Q3 qualifying session. This set will be given back to Pirelli after Q3 for those who qualify in the top 10, but the remaining drivers will keep it for the race.

The teams are free to choose the 10 remaining sets permitted from the three available compounds, making up 13 sets in total for the weekend.

Pirelli’s new-for-2016 ultrasoft compound makes its debut in Monaco this weekend.

The 2016 tyre choices so far:

Australia - supersoft, soft, medium
Bahrain - supersoft, soft, medium
China - supersoft, soft, medium
Russia - supersoft, soft, medium
Spain - hard, medium, soft

Monaco - ultrasoft, supersoft, soft
Canada - ultrasoft, supersoft, soft
Europe - supersoft, soft, medium
Austria - ultrasoft, supersoft, soft
Hungary - supersoft, soft, medium
Germany - supersoft, soft, medium
