Pirelli will take the softest possible combination of tyres to the upcoming races in Montreal and Spielberg, while it will stay conservative for the Silverstone race.

As first revealed by RacingNews365.com, Pirelli will introduce a new specification of tyre for the British Grand Prix onwards due to the high lateral energy loads.

The new specification tyre was tested by teams during Friday practice for the Spanish Grand Prix, which enabled Pirelli to gather a lot of data ahead of its introduction.

"This new specification is more resistant to fatigue thanks to the introduction of an already-homologated material originally planned for 2024," said Pirelli.

"But is otherwise exactly the same as the specification that will be used up to the Austrian Grand Prix."

Pirelli will take the soft compound range of C3, C4, and C5 to Montreal and Spielberg, while Silverstone will see the usage of the harder compound range of C1, C2, and C3.

The Italian tyre-maker has yet to make the C0 available at any race weekend so far in 2023.

Take a look at the compound usage so far below.
