F1: Pirelli announces tire plans for Malaysia

Pirelli has announced its Formula 1 tire compound choices for the Malaysian Grand Prix, with the hard tire making only its third appearance of the 2016 season.

The Italian supplier will bring the soft, medium and hard to Sepang, matching the choice made for Barcelona and Silverstone.

Pirelli says one set of the hard or medium must be used at some stage during the 56-lap race in late September.

It has nominated one set of the soft tire to be used in the final part of qualifying.

Teams are free to choose the remaining 10 sets they want to use for the race weekend.
