Pirelli reveal F1 tyre compounds for Imola, Monaco and Montreal

The same choice of F1 tyre compounds compared to last season


Pirelli, the exclusive tyre supplier for Formula 1, has announced the tyre compound selections for the upcoming Grand Prix in Emilia Romagna, Monaco, and Canada.

The selection remains consistent with last year’s tyre choices, featuring the C3 as the P Zero White hard, the C4 as the P Zero Yellow medium, and the C5 as the P Zero Red soft.

This continuity in tyre compound selection is notable, particularly as the compounds themselves have remained unchanged.

However, it’s important to note that while these compounds were slated for use at the Imola circuit last year, the event was ultimately cancelled due to severe flooding in the Romagna area.

The 2022 race at the Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari, which was the sole occasion the 18-inch Pirellis were utilized there, had a different set-up with C2 as Hard, C3 as Medium, and C4 as Soft.

This 2024 event, scheduled from May 17 to 19, is eagerly anticipated as it will test whether the softer compound choice enhances strategic diversity on a track known for its challenging overtaking conditions.

For the street circuits of Monaco and Montreal, the selection of softer compounds aligns with the smooth asphalt characteristics typical of these locations.

This strategy has been effectively implemented in previous years and continues to be the preferred approach for these particular races.

As the F1 calendar progresses, teams and drivers will be keen to see how these compound choices influence race strategies and performances, particularly at the varied track conditions presented by Imola, Monaco, and Montreal.
