Pirelli has announced a major change to its 2024 tyre options, with the elimination of a whole compound as Abu Dhabi tyre choices are revealed.
Pirelli has confirmed that there will be no new tyre compounds in the 2024 Formula 1 season, with the P0 tyre being discontinued. The P0 compound was introduced in 2023 but was never used in a Grand Prix weekend. For 2024, Pirelli will revert back to five compounds, with C1 being the hardest and C5 the softest. The tyre colours will remain the same. There will be a test day after the grand prix where each team will field two cars, one for young drivers and the other for tyre testing. The FIA has communicated that the 2024 compounds will be the same as this year, with the only change being the elimination of the C0 compound. The teams will have a predetermined tyre allocation for the test, with 10 sets for the car doing the tyre work and 8 sets for the car with young drivers. Pirelli will bring the C3-C4-C5 range for the race in Abu Dhabi.
