By Berthold Bouman

All teams will get two extra sets of experimental hard tyres on Friday for the British Grand Prix, Pirelli announced. Teams can use the tyres during the first two free practice sessions at Silverstone on Friday, it is the first time this season teams can test new rubber compounds.

Pirelli has allocated the Hard (silver marked) and Soft (yellow marked) tyre compounds for the British Grand Prix and as usual each driver will get six sets of the Prime tyres, in this case the hard tyre compound, and five sets of the Option tyres, the soft compound.
