d13ind1896-001-640x426(Pirelli) Formula One tyre supplier also made an attractive comparison between the performance of the four available tires, noting, “The performance differences in Bahrain between the compounds so far are approximately as follows: the super-soft is around 0.7 second per lap faster than the soft, the soft is around 1.2 seconds per lap quicker than the medium, and the medium is around 1.3 seconds per lap quicker than the hard. These gaps should come down considerably as the cars evolve.”
