Are three and a half months for the Russian Grand Prix and yet Pirelli already has announced which compounds will lead to that test, which will be the fourth of the season 2016 Formula 1.

P Zero media (white).
P-Zero soft (yellow).
P Zero superblandos (red).

These are the tires that should be used at some point of the race:
A media game or a game of soft.

Each pilot must have two compounds available for the race, and you must choose at least one of them.

The selected tyre for Q3 is the superblando.

Continuing with the regulation of 2016, each pilot must save for Q3 one of these compounds. This set will be returned to Pirelli after the Q3 for those who have been classified among the first ten, but the rest will be able to keep it for the race.

The teams are free to choose the rest of compounds, up to a total of 13 games for the weekend.

Russia made its debut on the calendar in 2014, and the two editions held so far have been in October. On this occasion the race will be the first day of may. For 2014, Pirelli brought the soft and medium, to 2015 the superblandos and soft, and in 2016 it will be the turn of the superblando, soft and medium.
