Pirelli designated tires for all 1 Formula 2021 GPs

Most of the nominations coincide with those defined for last season or 2019.

Pirelli made public the designated compounds for the 23 Great prizes that make up the 2021 calendar of Formula 1. Most of the nominations coincide with those defined for last season or 2019, with the exception of Azerbaiyán y Brazil, where we have chosen to lower the hardness one degree, and, of course, the two new circuits Zandvoort (Netherlands) and Saudi Arabia.

The logistical complications derived from the pandemic have invited the sports regulations to be made more flexible, and as was the case last season, the riders will have a closed set of tire sets for each Grand Prix: two sets of the hard compound, three of the medium and eight of the softest.

In any case, Pirelli and the International Automobile Federation reserve the right to alter this designation, as long as they notify it a maximum of 15 days in advance regarding the race in question.

“The announcement of all appointments for the current season will help teams and drivers in this crucial preparation phase, as well as granting us the greatest possible flexibility in the event that the schedule needs to be modified due to the rigors of Covid-19, as occurred on last year"Said Mario isola, responsible for Pirelli in F.1.

“The designations are, broadly speaking, similar to those of 2020 (already 2019, in the case of the tests not held last season), so the teams have plenty of data to work on. The only exception are two races in which the nomination is a softer point ", Agregó.

“The first is that of Azerbaijan, in which the hardest tire (C2) was never used, so we will go with the softer option: C3, C4 and C5. Then there is Brazil, where we will go with C2, C3 and C4, discarding the C1 as the hardest tire, since it barely offered any difference compared to the medium. In both cases, this softer designation will allow a greater variety of strategies ”Isola concluded.
