Pirelli Announces Tyres for Monaco GP
Everyone who follows motorsports knows that tyres plays a very important role in the outcome of a race. Therefore, it is important to know how Formula 1 teams are dealing with the tyre allocations. Pirelli has announced the tyre line-up for the sixth round of 2016 Formula One season scheduled to take place in Monaco on May 29.

Pirelli is bringing three tyres – P Zero Yellow soft, P Zero Red supersoft and P Zero Purple ultrasoft – to the Monaco GP. Moncao GP also happens to be the first time when Pirelli will bring ultrasoft tyres to use

This time arounf, Formula 1’s governing body FIA has mandated the use of one set of P Zero Yellow soft and P Zero Red supersoft tyres each during a race. Each driver must have both these sets available for the race and must use at least one of them. For the Q3 qualifying, the cars are assigned one set of P Zero Purple ultrasoft tyres for use.

To make Formula 1 more exciting, the regulations are made to help the slower cars catch the top 8 qualifiers. Following the regulations, each driver must save for Q3 one set of the softest of the three nominated compounds. This set will be given back to Pirelli after Q3 for those who qualify in the top 8, 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 for 13 sets in total for the weekend.

*The new 2016 tyre regulations mean that tyre nomination for long-haul events have to be made 14 weeks in advance, whereas for European races, the deadline is eight weeks in advance.
