Pirelli’s hard tyres have been nominated for the first time in the 2018 F1 season for the British Grand Prix at Silverstone.
Formula One’s official tyre supplier will bring the hard, medium and soft compound tyres for the July race. The range of tyres is one step harder than they used for the same race last year.
The British Grand Prix is one of three races where Pirelli will bring special tyres with a lower tread depth to help teams keep tyre temperatures from rising too quickly. This has been done in response to the new surface which has been laid at Silverstone, as well as the Circuit de Catalunya in Spain and Paul Ricard in France.
The hardest tyre in Pirelli’s range, the super-hard, has not yet been nominated for any race.
