Bridgestone announces final 2010 tyre selections

F1's official tyre supplier Bridgestone has announced the compounds it will bring to the final four rounds of the 2010 season, before withdrawing from the sport after the season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. In line with most other races this year, Bridgestone's selections feature a one-step difference in compounds.

For the Japanese Grand Prix next month, Bridgestone will bring the soft and hard compounds, as it did last year, while they will also leave their allocation of super-soft and medium compound slicks unchanged from 2009 for the Brazilian Grand Prix. Having brought a conservative selection of soft and medium tyres to the inaugural Abu Dhabi Grand Prix last year, the Japanese supplier has moved to a super-soft and medium allocation for 2010.
