Formula 1 Australia, Bahrain, Vietnam and China Tyre compound choices

While the 2019 season just finished, Pirelli already announced what tires they are bringing to China, Vietnam, Bahrain, and Australia.

Pirelli is bringing the following compounds to the 2020 Australian Grand Prix (Melbourne, March 13-15), 2020 Bahrain Grand Prix (Sakhir, March 20-22), 2020 Vietnam Grand Prix (Hanoi, April 3-5) and 2020 Chinese Grand Prix (Shanghai, April 17-19).

Tire options



Just three colors at each race in 2020, with five different compounds available: C1 is the hardest, C5 is the softest.

  1. Each driver must save one set of the softest of the three nominated compounds for Q3. This set will then be returned for those who qualify in the top 10, but the remaining drivers will keep it for the race.
  2. Each driver must have both race sets available for the Grand Prix.

Teams are free to choose the remaining 10 sets, making 13 sets in total for the weekend.
