Pirelli reveals 2019 tyre range colours

23 Octobre, 2018, 02:03 | Auteur: Adelaide Bullion

Pirelli now has a range of seven compounds, each with their own name and coloured sidewall, from which three are taken to each Grand Prix.

"We've been talking about this with the teams, FIA and Formula 1 for a while", said Mario Isola, Pirelli's head of vehicle racing.

Pirelli has confirmed that a simplified colour coding system will be used for its tyres in Formula 1 next season.

They range from the Hypersoft to the Superhard (a back-up compound not yet used at an event), and include the Ultrasoft, Supersoft, Soft, Medium and Hard.

"The idea is to give a number to each compound", he said.

"After some discussion we have made a decision to use, I would say, the most famous three colours in our range".

Trump Threatens to Cut Aid to Central American Nations Over Migrant Caravan
Trump also blamed Democrats for the caravan , saying they did not allow enough votes to change "our pathetic immigration laws". Later Sunday, authorities in Guatemala said another group of about 1,000 migrants had entered that country from Honduras.

"So if we are going to homologate five compounds, there will be one, two, three, four, five, and we give you the information in advance, so you know that for this race the hard is number two, the medium is three, the soft is four".

"But basically we will have a clear identification of each compound".

So in 2019, despite the continuing existence of different compounds, the three tyres at each race will always be coloured white (hardest), yellow (medium) and red (softest).

Next year, there will be just three colours at each race.

"We will give the information to everybody in advance, because teams have to make their choice, their selection, but they are not on the sidewalls", he said. That system has meant that at some races the soft tyre has actually been the hardest tyre available to teams at some weekends, which F1 felt was unnecessarily confusing for spectators.

However, there will still be a wider range of five or six compounds for Pirelli to choose from, ranging from harder to softer tyres that will vary in choice depending on circuit characteristics.
