ERJ staff report (BC)
Milan – Pirelli has announced the tire compounds from its slick P Zero series that will be taken to the first three Grands Prix of the second half of the season, in Belgium, Italy and Singapore.
At both Spa (23-25 August) and Monza (6-8 September) the P Zero Orange hard and P Zero White medium will be used.
The Singapore (20-22 September) street circuit will be run with the P Zero White medium and P Zero Red supersoft (with the latter making its first appearance since Canada).
All tires will be to the specification used from Hungary: with the 2012 construction matched to the 2013 compounds. The Cinturato Green intermediate and Cinturato blue full wet will also be brought to every race as usual.
Pirelli’s motorsport director Paul Hembery said: “The second half of the season starts off with two of the fastest and most demanding races for tires of the year, in Belgium and Italy. Singapore is a completely different challenge: the final street race of the season, which is ideal territory for the supersoft tires. As always, our selections have concentrated on providing the best opportunities for strategy as well as the most effective race tires.”
