Formula One official tyre supplier Pirelli has confirmed the tyres it will bring to the British Grand Prix in July later this year. The Italian marque has chosen to bring the hardest allocation of tyres to combat the high degradation Silverstone circuit.
The C1 tyre will be the hardest compound available to the drivers for the weekend, being used for the third time this season. The C2 compound will act as the middle tyre while the C3 will be the theoretical fastest over the course of one lap, and is likely to feature heavily in qualifying. The C1 compound will be identified by white tyre walls, the C2 by yellow side walls and the softest C3 by red walls.
