Pirelli name Spanish compounds


Pirelli have named the three compounds for the Spanish GP with hard, medium and soft tyres available for round five of the championship.

This year's Barcelona grand prix will mark the first race in which Pirelli's hardest compound is on offer.

The drivers will have to use one set of the hard tyres and one set of the mediums during the race while in Saturday's Q3 they must run a set of the soft tyres.

Under the new 2016 tyre regulations, Pirelli will dictate two compounds for the race and one for Saturday's final qualifying with the drivers are free to choose the remaining sets; making up 13 sets in total for the weekend.
