PIRELLI ANNOUNCES TYRE CHOICES TO END OF SEASON

Pirelli has completed its tyre nominations for the 2015 season, with the choices for the last four races now revealed. For the United States and Mexico – the two back-to-back grands prix coming up – the P Zero White medium and P Zero Yellow soft tyres will be used. For Austin, this is the same nomination as last year, while simulation data has indicated that this will also be the best choice for the brand new Mexico City circuit. The Brazilian Grand Prix at Interlagos will have the medium and soft tyres as well, as was the case in 2014. This should provide a range of strategy options and between two and three pit stops for most competitors, with conditions which could also be as hot as they were in Sao Paulo last season. Finally, the P Zero Yellow soft and P Zero Red supersoft have been selected for Abu Dhabi: again, the same selection as 2014, on a smooth and varied circuit that the teams know well from previous testing. The tyre choices so far:
