2019 Belgian and Japanese Grands Prix – Tyre compound choices
Milan, June 27 – Pirelli is bringing the following compounds to the 2019 Belgian Grand Prix (August 30 – September 1) and the 2019 Japanese Grand Prix (October, 11-13).
WHAT'S NEW IN 2019
Just three colours at each race in 2019, with five different compounds available: C1 is the hardest, C5 is the softest.
- Each driver must save one set of the softest of the three nominated compounds for Q3. This set will then be returned for those who qualify in the top 10, but the remaining drivers will keep it for the race.
Each driver must have both race sets available for the grand prix.
Teams are free to choose the remaining 10 sets, making 13 sets in total for the weekend.
Selections for long-haul events have to be made 14 weeks in advance; for European races the deadline is 8 weeks in advance.
