The races will be held on the Montmelò, Monte-Carlo, Montréal and Baku circuits respectively

(1) Each driver must save for Q3 one set of the softest of the three nominated compounds. This set will be given back to Pirelli after Q3 for those who qualify in the top 10, but the remaining drivers will keep it for the race – as is the case currently.

(2) Each driver must have both these sets available for the race and must use at least one of them.

The teams are free to choose the remaining 10 sets (excluding the first five events this year, so until Spain, where Pirelli allocate the sets) thus making up 13 sets in total for the weekend.

The regulations mean that the deadline for tyre sets choice for the long-haul events is 14 weeks in advance. For the European races the deadline is 8 weeks in advance.
