Formula 1’s official tyre supplier, Pirelli, has confirmed the details of the dry-weather tyre compounds it will bring to the Japanese, Korean and Indian Grands Prix later this year.
For the race at Suzuka, the fifteenth round of the 2012 season, Pirelli will bring its hard and soft tyre compounds to the sweeping circuit, and it will use the same compounds at India’s Buddh International Circuit at Delhi, which staged its inaugural Grand Prix last year.
For the Korean race, Pirelli will opt for an ultra-aggressive selection of soft and super-soft tyre compounds, which will be the same tyre allocations already confirmed for the Singapore Grand Prix, the next round of the championship season.
It will be the fourth time this season that the super-soft tyres will be used in a race setting – the Grands Prix at Monaco and Canada have been the other two events in 2012 where this has happened.
