Pirelli has announced its tyre allocation for the first four races of the 2015 Formula 1 season.
The Italian firm will bring its medium and soft tyres to the opening round of the championship in Australia.
Pirelli has opted to supply the more durable hard and medium tyre compounds for following race in Malaysia, owing to the high ambient temperatures at the Sepang circuit.
The white-marked medium tyres and the yellow-marked softs will be raced in China, where high degradation is expected.
The medium and soft Pirellis will also be used at the Bahrain Grand Prix.
Pirelli’s nominations for the first four races of the season are the same as those made in 2014.
Australia – Soft, Medium
Malaysia – Medium, Hard
China – Soft, Medium
Bahrain – Soft, Medium
