Pirelli announced choose medium, soft and super-soft tyres for 2016 Australian GP

PIRELLI ANNOUNCES COMPOUND CHOICES AND COMPULSORY SETS FOR THE 2016 AUSTRALIAN GRAND PRIX

The Italian tyre manufacturer and official F1 tyre supplier Pirelli will bring the following three compounds to the opening round of the 2016 Formula One season in Australia:

P Zero White medium
P Zero Yellow soft
P Zero Red supersoft

These are the tyres that Pirelli has said must be used at some point in the race:

One set of P Zero White medium
One set of P Zero Yellow soft.

Each driver must have both these sets available for the race, and must use at least one of them.

There are the tyres assigned for Q3 in qualifying:

One set of P Zero Red supersoft

Following on from the 2016 regulations, each driver must save one set of the softest of the three nominated compounds for Q3. This set will be given back to Pirelli after Q3 for those who qualify in the top 10, but the remaining drivers will keep it for the race – as is the case currently.

The teams are free to choose the remaining sets; making up 13 sets in total for the weekend.
