Pirelli has nominated the tyres that will be used in the grands prix of Spain, Monaco and Canada.

Milan – Following the start of the 2014 Formula One season, Pirelli has nominated the tyres that will be used in the grands prix of Spain, Monaco and Canada.

In Spain, Pirelli will bring the P Zero Orange hard and P Zero White medium: the two hardest tyres in the range. The Montmelo circuit is well known for putting high-energy loads through the tyres, while ambient temperatures can also be notable at the Spanish Grand Prix. Tarmac roughness is quite high, and the tyres on the left-hand side are particularly stressed.

For Monaco and Canada, respectively a street circuit and a semi-permanent facility, the two softest tyres in the range will be used: P Zero Yellow soft and P Zero Red Supersoft.

Monaco is the slowest circuit on the calendar, which is very twisty with smooth asphalt, and also relies heavily on mechanical grip from the tyres. This makes it the perfect place for the supersoft with its rapid warm-up to make its 2014 debut, in combination with the soft.

Canada is another circuit that is very reliant on mechanical grip, with the race frequently held in cool temperatures. As a result, the soft and supersoft is once again the ideal choice. Traction and braking are the main characteristics of the lap.
