Pirelli launches 2021 WRC tyres in Italy

Pirelli unveiled its new range of FIA World Rally Championship tyres on Thursday (8 October) morning ahead of the firm’s return as the series’ sole supplier next year. The Norwegian has helped Pirelli create a suite of tyres for gravel, asphalt, snow and ice with a focus on durability, performance and adaptability. Drivers can choose from the Sottozero Snow tyres, fitted with or without studs, alongside more regular asphalt tyres. In more extreme conditions faced on Scandinavian winter rallies like Sweden, a full Sottozero Ice tyre is provided. Over the remainder of the season, teams and drivers face a spectrum of different gravel rallies. There is a similar diversity across the pure asphalt events, for which a single P Zero tyre will be provided in hard and soft compounds.
