Pirelli has confirmed the tyres it will take to the final Formula 1 rounds before the summer break.

The tyre maker will be bringing softer compounds to the Hungarian Grand Prix compared to last year, nominating the C3, C4 and C5 as the Hard, Medium and Soft compounds respectively.

The Alternative Tyre Allocation will make its debut after it was due to make its first appearance at the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix, before it was postponed.

Under the ATA regulations only one type of compound will be used in each of the three parts of qualifying: Hard for Q1, Medium for Q2, and Soft for Q3.

The total number of slick tyres will be reduced from 13 to 11 for Hungary, with each driver having a total of seven dry sets available for qualifying and the race while the rest get returned after practice sessions. Their wet tyre allocation remains unchanged.

For the Belgium Grand Prix the tyre allocation will remain the same as last year: the C2, C3 and C4.
