Pirelli Compound Colours

New tyre supplier for 2011, Pirelli, have announced their colour coding system for the forthcoming season.

Whereas 2010's Bridgestone tyres featured a coloured ring around the tyre to denote the compound, Pirelli are instead going to change the colour of the 'Pirelli' and 'P Zero' logos.

The colour scheme will be as follows:
  Wet - Orange
  Intermediate - Light Blue
  Supersoft - Red
  Soft - Yellow
  Medium - White
  Hard - Silver

It will be interesting to see how easy it is to differentiate between yellow, white and silver whilst the wheel is rotating.
