Pirelli F1 2011

2011 F1 tyre supplier, Pirelli have revealed their colours for the new season.

There are to be six colours:-

Wet - Orange
Intermediate - Light Blue  
Supersoft - Red 
Soft - Yellow  
Medium - White
Hard - Silver.

At the first Grand Prix, Silver and Yellow tyres will be on view.

Pirelli's Motorsport Director stated in his press release,

"We are very excited by the prospect of returning to Formula One for the first time in 20 years, and we are aiming to be a proactive and colourful parter in Formula One."

Pirelli's strategy is to make the differences between prime and option tyres more pronounced.  They will do this by providing a step of at least one compound between the tyres nominated for each race.

The most intelligent users of tyres will come to the fore - in recent years this proved to be Jenson Button.  
Brawn and Schumacher also have solid history to prove they can make the most of tyre stops and put in race determining times as tyres come to the edge of their wear limits.
