ERJ staff report (DS)
Milan -- Pirelli has revealed the colours that will be used to distinguish the six different types of tyre that will be used throughout the coming F1 season.
In order to tell the six tyres apart, each will carry its own distinct colouring on the Pirelli and PZero logos affixed to the sidewall. Under the sport's rules, only two compounds of slick tyre - known as the prime and the option - will be used for each race. In addition to this, intermediate and wet tyres can be fitted if it rains.
The six colours are as follows:
- Wet - orange
- Intermediate - light blue
- Supersoft - red
- Soft - yellow
- Medium - white
- Hard - silver
