Pirelli has announced the tyre compounds it will take to the first four races of the 2013 Formula 1 season.


For the first time the super-soft will be used in the season-opening Australian Grand Prix, in conjunction with the medium compound.

The newly-branded orange hard tyre and the white medium will be taken to the Malaysian Grand Prix in order to cope with the high temperatures and abrasive surface of the Sepang International track.

The medium and soft will be used for the third round of the season in China, while a fourth different combination - the soft and hard compounds - will be taken to Bahrain.

As was the case last year, each team will receive six sets of the harder compound and five sets of the softer compound for each race weekend.

Pirelli will also bring four sets of intermediate and three sets of full wet tyres to all four races in case of rain.

Grand Prix     Option          Prime
Australia      Super-soft      Medium
Malaysia       Medium 	       Hard
China          Soft 	       Medium
Bahrain        Soft            Hard
