Pirelli reveals the tires for Canada, Austria, and Great Britain
The three Pirelli tire compounds for the upcoming Grand Prix races in Canada, Austria, and Great Britain will be the same as last year, the Formula One official tyre supplier confirmed on Thursday.
In Montreal and Spielberg, the softest possible combination will be used: C3 as the P Zero White hard, C4 as the P Zero Yellow medium, and C5 as the P Zero Red soft. In Silverstone, on the other hand, C1 will be the hard tire, C2 the medium, and C3 the soft.
Montreal, the host of the Formula 1 Canadian Grand Prix from June 16 to 18, is a medium-high-speed track. While the Gilles Villeneuve circuit can be considered a semi-permanent track, it has unforgiving walls and barriers near the finish line, leaving little room for error. It is a track where stability under braking and good traction are crucial to be competitive. The Canadian Grand Prix is now an iconic event, not only because it is often unpredictable, with the Safety Car frequently deployed, but also for its unique atmosphere.
Heading towards Spielberg and Silverstone
Two weeks after Canada, the Austrian Grand Prix takes place at the fast Spielberg circuit, which has the fewest corners of any track on the calendar, with only 10 in total. On Saturday, the Red Bull Ring will host the second Sprint race of the 2023 Formula 1 season, preceded by the Sprint Shootout to determine the grid positions.

From July 7 to 9, Formula 1 returns to the place where the championship began: Silverstone, which features a track largely unchanged since the first British Grand Prix in 1950. The new Pirelli tire specification will make its debut on a track that is well-known for its high lateral energy load on the tires due to numerous fast corners. This new specification, tested by teams during Friday practice sessions in Spain, is more resistant to wear and introduces a material that was originally planned for 2024 but is otherwise identical to the specification that will be used until the Austrian Grand Prix.
