Pirelli reveal tyre choices for Bahrain and Russia


As a little teaser for the 2017 Formula 1 Championship, Pirelli have announced their tyre choices for the third and fourth rounds of the season.

With both Grands Prix taking place in April, Bahrain will see drivers and teams have a choice between supersoft, soft and medium compound tyres.

Fast forward two weeks at the Sochi Autodrom circuit for the Russian Grand Prix, ultra soft, supersoft and soft compounds are going to feature.

Tyre choices played an important part during last season, well everyone except for Mercedes.

However, the first five races of the New Year will see all drivers use the same compounds at Pirelli’s discretion.
