F1 2020 – Tyre Compounds

The named compounds are the tyre compounds of the 2020 Formula One season. All slicks and rain tyres are listed. I have summarized the different slick versions (C1, C2 and C3).

Soft

Color: Red.

  • Is ideal for slow and twisty circuits.
  • Especially in cold weather, when maximum mechanical grip is needed.
  • Benefits from an extremely rapid warm-up time.
  • Which makes it ideal in qualifying as well.
  • Nevertheless, the tyre degrades quickly.
  • Low working range compound.

Medium

Color: Yellow.

  • One of the most frequently used tyres in the range.
  • Striking a very good balance between performance and durability.
  • With the accent on performance.
  • It is biased towards speed rather than long distances.
  • But it is a good choice at the start and in sprint races or rather at the end.
  • Medium working range compound.

Hard

Color: White.

  • Is the most perfectly balanced of all the tyres.
  • With an ideal compromise between performance and durability.
  • It is extremely versatile.
  • They are used on circuits that tend towards high speeds, temperatures and energy loadings.
  • High working range compound.

Intermediate

Color: Green.

  • They are the most versatile of the rain tyres.
  • Dispersing approximately 25 litres of water per second at full speed.
  • Can be used on a wet as well as a drying track.

Wet

Color: Blue.

  • Disperse up to 65 litres of water per second at full speed.
  • The most effective solution for heavy rain.
  • It is also effective on a drying track.
  • Driveable in a wide variety of conditions.
  • Was extremely valuable in determining the latest evolutions.
