Pirelli have revealed the three tyre compounds that will be made available for September’s Formula 1 Gran Premio Heineken d'Italia 2016.

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.
