All ten Formula 1 teams have now revealed how they will split up driving duties over this week’s pre-season test at Bahrain International Circuit.
Pirelli will supply each of the teams with 39 sets of tyres (35 sets of slicks, two intermediates and two wets), but seven of those those sets must remain unused and returned.
If a team does go through 32 sets of tyres in the test, then its selection must include the two sets of unmarked prototype C3 tyres that have been provided.
The markings of the other tyre compounds in terms of colour are white for C0 and C1, with the C0 only including text and not the ‘bracket’ line that runs around the tyre, a bracket-free yellow for the C2 and full yellow for the standard C3 tyre, a text-only red for the C4 and a combination of red text and bracket for the C5. The intermediate and wet compounds, if they are seen on track, are green and blue respectively.
The wet tyre will be of the specification that is being sent to the first five races, before an updated compound that does not require tyre blankets is introduced.
