The announcement of an expanded range of seven dry Formula 1 tyre compounds for 2018 has caused some uproar among fans, with many suggesting the system is now too complicated, especially with some extra colours added to the mix.
Pirelli unveiled seven compounds in a "rainbow" range. One of the new compounds will be the orange super-hard and will work as an insurance policy in case the other tyre choices prove to be too soft, while at the other end of the scale, the pink hyper-soft tyre - named by a social media poll - will be the softest compound.
It's worth remembering the challenge that Pirelli faced a year ago. The 2017 rules prescribed wider tyres, and on top of that came increased downforce levels and hence cornering speeds, which translated into greater loads being transferred to the tyres.
