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.
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.
