Pirelli has announced the tyre compounds that it will bring to the opening three rounds of next year's Formula 1 campaign.

As has been the case for several years, Bahrain will open the new season on March 2, followed by an immediate trip to Saudi Arabia.

The Bahrain event will see the C1, C2 and C3 tyres nominated for the weekend, the most conservative choice in Pirelli's range.

Saudi Arabia will be a step softer with the C2, C3 and C4 tyres brought to the Jeddah Corniche Circuit.

Another step down the range will be used in Australia for the third round of the season as the C3, C4 and C5 compounds will be used by the drivers.

Pirelli has also announced that during pre-season testing in Bahrain, which takes place from 21 - 23 February, the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) logo will appear for the first time on all the tyres as part of Pirelli's continued sustainability push.

The Italian marque enters the 2024 season with one less tyre compound in its range having omitted the C0 tyre.

The hardest compound in the range was introduced last year but wasn't used at a single round during the campaign.
