Formula One: Pirelli Ultrasoft to debut in Montreal


Pirelli will bring the following three compounds to the seventh* round of the 2016 Formula One season in Canada (June 10 – 12):

P Zero Yellow soft; P Zero Red supersoft; P Zero Purple ultrasoft

These are the MANDATORY tyres to be available for the race:
2 two sets of P Zero Yellow soft

Each driver must have both these sets available for the race, and must use at least one of them.

These are the tyres assigned for Q3 in qualifying:
One set of P Zero Purple ultrasoft

Following on from the 2016 regulations, each driver must save for Q3 one set of the softest of the three nominated compounds. 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 – as is the case currently.

The teams are free to choose the remaining sets; making up 13 sets in total for the weekend.
