Pirelli has announced the tire compounds it will take to the first three races of the 2012 Formula 1 season.
The soft and medium compounds will be used in the season-opening Australian Grand Prix as well as as in the third race of the year in China. Pirelli will take the medium and hard compounds to the Malaysian Grand Prix, the second round of the championship.
Each team will receive six sets of the harder compound and five sets of the softer compound for each race weekend.
Pirelli will also bring its intermediate and full wet tires in case of rain to all races.
