2018 sees the introduction of 2 brand new tyre compounds for the F1 season. Pirelli’s pink hypersoft and orange superhard expands the range of slick compounds to 7.
Ex-F1 racer and Channel 4 commentator Karun Chandhok recently spoke to our friends at Mobil 1 The Grid about the new compounds and what they mean for the 2018 F1 season.
Reviewing the ‘Pirelli rainbow’ Chandhok looks at how the new tyres and the hypersoft in particular will impact on driving styles, strategy and the chances of some surprise results this season.
