Formula 1’s official tyre supplier, Pirelli, has confirmed the dry-weather tyre allocations it will bring to the upcoming Japanese and Russian Grands Prix which take place next month.

The Italian manufacturer will freight its Medium (White-marked) and Hard (Orange-marked) compounds for the Suzuka event. For Formula 1’s first visit to the all-new Sochi Autodrom, it will take the Soft (Yellow-marked) and Medium compounds.

Pirelli’s choices for the United States, Brazil and Abu Dhabi rounds are the only yet to be confirmed.
