Pirelli has announced the tyre compounds teams will have to choose from at the final three grands prix of the tyre manufacturer’s first season back in Formula One.

At the inaugural Indian Grand Prix, drivers will choose from Pirelli’s yellow-banded soft and silver-banded hard tyres, while in Abu Dhabi and Brazil, the white medium and yellow soft compounds will be available.

“India is a big unknown for all the teams and ourselves, so we will also be taking the most durable hard tyre in order to cover every base,” said Pirelli motorsports director Paul Hembery.

“Abu Dhabi is much more familiar territory for us, where we know that the medium and the soft tyre will suit the circuit well. As for Interlagos, we’re aiming to end the season on a high,” he added. “The combination of medium and soft rubber has given us some close racing in the past, lots of overtaking and provided some good opportunities for interesting pit stop strategies.”
