Pirelli has announced its tire compound choices for three more grands prix, revealing the rubber it will bring to the Bahrain, Spanish and Monaco races.
Bahrain will see the same medium/soft selection made for Australia and China, before the hard and soft compounds are used for Catalunya, in an effort to both handle the track's high lateral tire loadings and promote strategic variety. For Monte Carlo, Pirelli will bring its super-soft for the first time in 2012, alongside the soft compound.
"Our nominations this year are designed to push the envelope of performance, as can be seen from our latest choices," Pirelli motorsport director Paul Hembery said. "Only the super-soft tire is the same compound as last year: the other compounds are softer and therefore faster, designed to encourage closer racing as well as a wider variety of strategies."
