Formula One’s official tyre supplier has used its hardest tyres at the high-speed Spa-Francorchamps circuit for the past two seasons.
It last brought the soft tyre to this race in 2011, where concerns over blistering arose during the weekend. Pirelli attributed this to some teams exceeding the recommended camber angles, and Red Bull were among those to run very short stints on the soft tyres at the start of the race.
Pirelli will stay true to form with its tyre choices for Monza and Singapore, where respectively its hardest and softest rubber will be used.
