Pirelli has confirmed what compounds it will be bringing to the Azerbaijan Grand Prix later this year. The race through the Baku streets hosts moves from its previously occupied mid-season race to the fourth event of the 2018 season.

The soft, super soft and ultra soft will be available to the teams during the weekend. Drivers will be allocated 13 sets of tyres, six of which will be handed back to Pirelli by the time all of the free practice sessions have concluded.

The decision to bring the ultra soft tyre comes as the Italian marque looks to be less conservative with its compound choices this year. Below, you can see a table which shows all the confirmed tyre compounds for the 2018 season.
