Pirelli LogoMilan, September 11, 2014 – Pirelli has revealed the nominations for the forthcoming grands prix in Japan and Russia.

The Japanese Grand Prix takes place at the spectacular Suzuka circuit: one of the most demanding tracks of the year in terms of lateral energy. For this reason, the two hardest compounds in the range have been selected: P Zero Orange hard and P Zero White medium, to cope with the high speeds, high abrasion and fast corners.

The choice for the brand-new Sochi circuit in Russia is much more complex, as there has not yet been any representative running on the track. However, using simulation data, Pirelli engineers have calculated that the most suitable choice should be P Zero White medium and P Zero Yellow soft, a combination that is capable of covering a wide range of conditions.

The choices for the final three races of the year will be announced after the Russian Grand Prix.

The tyre choices so far:
P Zero Red P Zero Yellow P Zero White P Zero Orange
Australia Soft Medium
Malaysia Medium Hard
Bahrain Soft Medium
China Soft Medium
Spain Medium Hard
Monaco Supersoft Soft
Canada Supersoft Soft
Austria Supersoft Soft
Britain Medium Hard
