The Italian manufacturer will take the soft and medium tyres to the upcoming United States Grand Prix at Austin, and will repeat the combo for the Mexican Grand Prix, which returns to the calendar this year.

The same compounds will be used in the Brazilian Grand Prix, the penultimate round of the season.

"This should provide a range of strategy options and between two and three pitstops for most competitors, with conditions which could also be as hot as they were in Sao Paulo last season," said Pirelli.

Pirelli will take the super-softs and the softs to the F1 finale in Abu Dhabi.

All the compound choices are the same as in 2014.

2015 tyre choices:

 Australia   Soft Medium  
 Malaysia     Medium Hard
 China   Soft Medium  
 Bahrain   Soft Medium  
 Spain     Medium Hard
 Monaco Supersoft Soft    
 Canada Supersoft Soft    
 Austria Supersoft Soft    
 Britain     Medium Hard
 Hungary   Soft Medium  
 Belgium   Soft Medium  
 Italy   Soft Medium  
 Singapore Supersoft Soft    
 Japan     Medium Hard
 Russia Supersoft Soft    
 USA   Soft Medium  
 Mexico   Soft Medium  
 Brazil   Soft Medium
