    Pirelli reveals final colour markings

    Pirelli has announced the colours that it will use to distinguish the six different types of tyre to be used during the 2011 season.

    Each tyre will carry its own colouring on the Pirelli and PZero logos affixed to the sidewall.

    The six colours are as follows:

    Wet - orange
    Intermediate - light blue
    Supersoft - red
    Soft – yellow
    Medium – white
    Hard – silver

    "We're very excited by the prospect of returning to Formula 1 for the first time in 20 years, and we're aiming to be a proactive and colourful partner in Formula 1," said Pirelli's Paul Hembery. "So what better way to symbolise this than a brightly coloured selection of Pirelli logos to run on the sidewalls?

    "These will enable both live and television audiences to tell at a glance who is on what compounds, which will be vital knowledge as tyres are set to form a key part of race strategy this year."

    Pirelli will take the hard and soft compounds to the first three races of the season, meaning that silver and yellow tyres will be first to make an appearance in Australia.
